                  K Score (Total your responses)

 

Compare your three scores. Whichever total is higher, V, P, or K, is your primary Energy State. It is common for people to have two high scores and one lower score. This indicates that you are a combination of two main Energy States, with a minor influence from the third one. In some cases, you may have three similar scores, which indicates that you have a Tri-Energy State. (Please note that this quiz is adapted from Dharma Parenting.)
