Ayurvedic constitution analysis- find your prakriti


We have provided below a quiz to find out your prakruti. The quiz consists of some physical, emotional, and mental characteristics. Each question has three answers which fall under either Vata, Pitta, or Kapha. Choose the answer which best suits you. Sometimes you might fall into more than one category, you can choose more than one answer in that case.


Mostly one of the components (either vata, pitta, or kapha) will be dominant for you. Eg. If you get more answers in the Pitta category then Pitta is the most dominant prakruti for you, followed by either vata or kapha.

In Ayurveda when we talk about the prakruti then we mention the first two dominant components only. Example- If we say you are Pitta-Vatta, this means the most dominant is Pitta followed by Vata, and the third one Kapha (which is generally not written).

The following outcomes are possible.

  • Vata-Pitta
  • Pitta-Vata
  • Vata-Kapha
  • Kapha-Vata
  • Pitta-Kapha
  • Kapha-Pitta
  • Tri-dosha (Vata-Pitta-Kapha)- In this case all the three components are in almost equal numbers, this is rare.
