Your constitution type:
Governing change and intense energy, your constitution would be described as focused, hot, and all-consuming. Hence, fire is your representing element.
Traditional Eastern Medicine would describe you as "Pitta"-dominant, meaning you have a lot of heat, zest for life and generally a strong metabolism. When aggravated, imbalance can manifest as quick bursts of anger, frustration, or becoming over critical. When in balance, you have an unyielding focus, like an arrow to a target.
A healthy person with a Pitta-predominant constitution is passionate, determined, and intellectually sharp. They are the "movers and shakers" of society with intensity in their presence, a strong frame, and driven with an analytical mind. You quickly recognizes the truth in situations and maintains the flexibility to change to match life’s rhythms.
