My Dosha is Pitta

I had to look up dosha to see what it was.

Wikipedia says: Dosha (or, sometimes, Dosa) is often translated as the Sanskrit term for humour. Ayurvedic doshas are the manifestations of elemental forces in the physical body.

Ayurvedic Foundations says:
Pitta Dosha
The Pitta dosha is associated with fire or heat. Wherever there is transformation, there is Pitta (doing its job). Whether it is in the GI tract, liver, skin, eyes or brain doesn't matter, for these are all locations where Pitta works.
Pitta provides the following functions:
Metabolism - at all the various levels from digestion of food to transformation of all other material
Thermogenesis - maintains the proper body temperature
Vision - converts external images into optic nerve impulses
Appetite - the feeling of hunger and thirst
Comprehension - of information into knowledge, also reasoning and judgment
Courage & Braveness - to face the situation
Complexion - gives color and softness to skin

These silly quizzes are so much fun when they describe me to a t. Although, Ethel's described me pretty well too. It makes me wonder if it isn't one of those pseudo science tricks of wording things so that they describe everyone? Those are fun too. I guess as long as they are fun and you aren't investing rent, utility, and food money in them, they can't hurt. And this quiz is free. It doesn't even take much time to take. And I really like the graphic that came with my dosha. I love those colors!

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.
