Which Guna Are You According To Your Habits?

You got: Sattvic

As Lord Krishna himself raves, a person of predominantly sattvic characteristics "is stainless and brings light." You're righteous, fearless, tolerant, and have a true sense of your dharma. Go you! (Bhagavad Gita, 14.6)

You got: Rajasic

Lord Krishna himself describes you to have "the nature of passion arising from connection to thirst." You're restless, lustful, and greedy. Oh well. We can't deny our desires now, can we? (Bhagavad Gita, 14.7)

You got: Tamasic

You need to get your act together, and QUICK! Even Lord Krishna himself thinks you're "born of ignorance," which is certainly not a compliment! You are lazy, lethargic, distracted, and, well... probably slightly evil. (Bhagavad Gita 14.8)
