unless you do yoga, would anybody know that?
Ah ha, but they did have a link. It's a yoga thing! But, alas, I couldn't find anything in the chaos of the page I was sent to . . . so I Googled "dosha." Found it at last.
|Your Dosha is Pitta|
You have a quick mind, a gift for persuasion, and a sharp sense of humor.
You have both the drive and people skills to be a very successful leader.
Argumentative and a bit stubborn, you have been known to be a little too set in your ways. But while you may be biased toward your own point of view, you are always honest, fair, and ethical.
With friends: You are outgoing and open to anyone who might want to talk to you
In love: You are picky but passionate
To achieve more balance: Be less judgmental of those around you, and take cool walks in the moonlight.
According to the What's Your Dosha website
So, then I had to ask, "What is a Pitta?" Sounds like the center of some exotic fruit. The What's Your Dosha website was kind enough to provide a little more information than the above test.
Pitta-type people are generally of medium size and well proportioned. They have a medium amount of physical energy and stamina. They also tend to be intelligent and have a sharp wit and a good ability to concentrate. Fire is a characteristic of Pitta, whether it shows up as fiery red hair or a short temper. Since Pittas' body temperature is generally warm, Pitta types can go out of balance with overexposure to the sun. Their eyes are sensitive to light. They are ambitious by nature but also can be demanding and abrasive. Pitta types are known for their strong digestion but should be careful not to abuse it. Their heat makes them particularly thirsty, and they should take caution not to douse their agni, or digestive fire, with too much liquid during meals. Pitta dosha leads us to crave moderation and purity. We rely on Pitta to regulate our intake of food, water, and air. Any toxins, such as alcohol or tobacco, show up as a Pitta imbalance. Toxic emotions such as jealousy, intolerance, and hatred also should be avoided to keep Pitta in balance for optimum health.
Whew, good thing I found that out. I think I like the definition I posted at the first of this blog better. This other one is just a little too Hindu or eastern Indian for me.
I have a better solution. Look in the mirror, take stock of both the negative and positive aspects of your personality and body and then make the changes you need to make.
