What's Your Dosha

read shirley's blog and was introduced to blog things. took some of the test and saw one that attracts my attention - "What's your dosha?". did a little research and here goes ..

dosha is the manifestations of elemental forces in the physical body. n the 3 main doshas are:
- Vata (space and air elements)
- Pitta (fire element)
- Kapha (water and earth elements)

Vata have lighter frames. nose, hands and feet are often cold to the touch because of the poor circulation characterizing the Vata constitution. movements and speech are quick. sleep is light. they are restless and have lots of ideas. they are creative and imaginative, but are fearful, anxious, and insecure. they are also shy, less bold and with less will-power. Vata doshas' predominant senses are hearing and touch.

Pitta are average physically. their moods change slowly. they are busy people. they are more intellectual. their speech is clear, sharp, and precise. they are fiery, angry, judgmental, ambitious and chivalrous. Pitta doshas' predominant sense is sight.

Kaphas' body types are sturdier. they have the best strength and endurance. also slow, steady pace. mentally, they are calm, steady, and stable. They can be greedy and possessive but are caring and not easily irritated. Kapha-dominant people are more self-sufficient. but looking a bit more impassionate due to their incline towards introversion or withdrawal. Kapha doshas' predominant senses are smell and taste.

i find it kinda interesting. not to say that the test result has the exact accuracy portraying my personalities, but .. close enough. :p the explanation above, which i summarized from searching the net has a clearer and better match.

Your Dosha is Vata

Creative and restless, you take in all of life's pleasures (maybe a little too much!). You're quick witted and very talkative, but you also tend to have a spotty memory. You tend to get very into ideas, people, and lifestyles ... but only for a short time. It's difficult to hold your attention, and you sometimes feel with what life has to offer.

With friends: You are very uncomfortable in new situations or with new people

In love: You fall in and out of love very easily

To achieve more balance: Live in a warm climate and spend some quiet time in nature
