Rama Prasad (www.ayurvedaelements.com.) teaches the use of the 5 elements in addition to the 3 doshas:

Ether+ Air= Vata

Fire+Water= Pitta

Water+Earth= Kapha

Hence a person may be an ether or and air Vata type or a water or earth Kapha type. This avoids the confusion of two very different people being told they are both the same dosha.

  Mostly 1-2 elements are dominant.
