I would say δοκιμάζω is try as in "try on clothes" or "taste" etc. Whereas, "προσπαθώ" attempt. "Attempt" to climb the mountain." or "Attempt to open the jar." (to be realistic). It's a bit like English: 'try to do something' and 'try doing something'.

Many thanks, that clears up my confusion. If it was "what are you trying to do" then Ι could use "προσπαθώ ".

That sound right but I guess it depends on the context.
