Generally these differences may occur due to poor food habit, feeble digestion and irregular elimination of toxins. According to ayurveda, there are three doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) which maintain our biology. Imbalanced Vata leads to anxiety, insomnia, fright etc. When pitta is imbalanced, it creates anger and bad temper. And excessive Khapha regulates an individual towards depression and laziness.

The other major factors along with the above mentioned factors are the daily routine, external environment, work pressure etc.
