Understanding your dosha is similar to knowing about yourself. It helps you to understand what motivates you and what skills you have, and who and what can bring you problems.

The bhutas (elements) and the gunas(attributes) of each dosha assist you in using your dosha as a predictor of your actions, thoughts, and mental and emotional behavioral tendencies.

Knowing your dosha isn’t a confirmation that you will find the appropriate career; it can provide you with a theoretical basis to get the correct direction and get an easy and helpful career.


Working in an ideal location on the right career path and checking all of your dream job boxes isn’t a guarantee of happiness and fulfillment at work. There are some characteristics of different doshas in different professional roles.


As a team leader or boss: Vatas often rise to leadership positions due to their imaginative and creative qualities. Yet, they may lack the discipline and organization that we demand from our superiors.

This could be energizing for other vatas who thrive on all things different and exciting but irritating for pittas and kaphas who are outcome-oriented and appreciate predictability. 

As a coworker:  for individuals looking for skilled employees at creating and willing to interact, and kind-hearted and open-minded who is acceptable might be pleasant.

If this vata employee becomes unbalanced, then others who work with them might need to be patient with them. When vatas work together, they generate many creative ideas and designs, but the implementation of those ideas and designs may be inadequate.

Unlike every doshas has its own strength and struggles at the workplace, Vata also has its own strength and struggles.

Strengths: people who have a strong connection to the ether and air components or vata dosha experience a surge of vitality as things change. They enjoy the novelty of new experiences, which can offer them an advantage in a job. vatas are excellent at creating, dreaming, and imagining, so look for them in occupations that empower them to do so. With their agility and lightness, vatas excel at quick thinking, making fast-paced surroundings and a comfortable environment for themselves.

Struggles: The light, airy attributes that promote vata’s capabilities can also bring work difficult. They may struggle to meet the deadlines for various reasons, including forgetfulness, boredom, and inability to focus long enough to complete the task.

Now let’s talk about Pitta’s strengths and struggles first. 

Strengths: Pitta is the most motivated doshas since it is the only one with a fire constitution. This is accompanied by dedication, focus and attention, and mental sharpness that makes them some of the world’s best decision-makers, organizers, and detail-oriented individuals.

Pittas thrive in work environments that provide structure, routine, and goals, not only because they excel in these areas but also because they enjoy opportunities and tasks that are provided to them.

Struggles: Pittas may struggle with authority because they are confident and want to lead. This is especially true if they believe they are more qualified for the position or aren’t given the challenges or responsibilities they require to thrive. Likewise, if they have their sights set on higher-ranking positions, they will go to any length to achieve them, even working extra hours out of the workplace. As a result, pittas get less time for family and don’t attend any enjoyable activities, or family friends get together.

Pitta as a team leader or boss: pittas are born with organizers, best planers, and leadership behaviors. Pittas like to take on extra responsibilities, and they have a boss behavior in themselves, but they are controlling in nature and can force others to do the task accordingly, as they want.

Pitta as a coworker:  Pittas are known for being punctual, trustworthy, and responsible coworkers, yet it’s in their nature to desire to lead even though all employees are on an equal field. This works well if they cooperate with vatas or kaphas, but it may irritate other pittas and lead to serious competition. 

Now let’s discuss about our third and final dosha Kapha. Kapha dosha has its own struggles and strengths, props, and cons in the work field.

Strength of Kapha dosha: the earth and water components provide incomparable steadiness and mental endurance to individuals with greater Kapha. People that require motivation and patience are right up their alley.

They don’t give up easily or swiftly, making them some of the most devoted employees a company may have. They prefer to proceed more slowly and at their own pace than vata. Therefore the less stimulating and monotonous their employment and schedule are better. 

Struggles of Kapha:  kapas struggle to change, and they may find themselves stuck in a job they don’t particularly enjoy but can’t bear the notion of leaving. They may find it difficult to adjust to new regulations and procedures; it is not impossible, but it might take more time than most.

Kaphas may have difficulty speaking up for themselves, having their thoughts heard, or even delegating responsibilities to others since they are conflict-averse.

Kapha as a boss or team leader: Kapha frequently progresses to leadership positions due to their long and successful career and dedication to an organization, but they rarely seek them out. Even though they are more than capable of performing tasks, they also prefer to handle decision-making for others. This isn’t due to a lack of confidence. Rather new duties, even if they come with a pay boost, aren’t particularly tempting to them. As a result, when kaphas become boss, they are often laid-back, open to other people’s ideas, and willing to give their employees a lot of freedom.

Kapha as a coworker: the considerate Kapha fits in perfectly as a coworker. They enjoy assisting others while still being content to work alone. This makes the Kapha the best coworker with whom working feels like a pleasure
