  • Genius: Who doesn't love Genuises? If you want your Sim to be a quick learner and intelligent, this trait is the ideal solution. For example, if your Sim is Genius and studying in the High School Years, the chance of success will increase by a huge margin.
  • Creative: Creativity is the key to attaining success in every profession. In Sims 4, this trait will help focus while doing certain tasks, like drawing, writing, etc., while generating new ideas.

How to FAQ

Your Sim can get more traits by interacting with other Sims. The more interaction will help you determine or reveal their suitable traits. Otherwise, the Re-Traiting Potion, the cheats, and entering into the CAS mode can help you obtain the traits.

Resetting/Changing traits isn't possible after creating the Sim. But, consuming the potion and using the cheats are the two possible ways to moderate the traits even after you have developed the Sim already.

Your adult Sim can have 3 three traits in the CAS mode. Additionally, the mode allows you to get two traits for a teen, but only one for toddlers and children.
