Learn More About YOU

The following questionnaire is a key part of Getting To Know You, and a convenient way to score and learn your balance of biopsychotypes. 

 

The questionnaire usually takes 20 minutes or less to complete. 

At the end of the questionnaire, there are links to excerpts from the book that will give you an overview of your constitutional features from an acupuncture point of view. This information, used with Getting To Know You, can guide you in learning how acupuncture can best be used to optimize your health and well being, and to address specific health concerns you may have.

What Is Your Constitutional Makeup?

Select the 2, 5, 7, or 10 score for each question that represents a quality or disturbance you recognize in yourself, even if it is only approximately accurate in its description. If the item does not seem to apply to you, select 0 for that item. If one part of a two-part question applies to you, choose the full score value for the question.

  • 0 indicates that this quality does not apply to you

  • 2 indicates that you are familiar with this quality in yourself but that it is not present at all times or a predominant part of your makeup

  • 5 indicates that this quality is present much of the time in your makeup and life activities

  • 7 indicates that you are very familiar with this quality, but it is not as strong as a more dominant feature of your makeup

  • 10 indicates that this quality is strongly characteristic of who you really are, or that it is a predominant part of your makeup.
