What do Sim Characteristics do?

Sim Characteristics are a way beyond Traits to give detail to your Sims' personality preferences. The selections you make will especially influence how your Sim interacts with other Sims who possess certain Traits. For example, a Sim with the Optimistic Sims positive preference will likely not get along with a Sim who has the Gloomy personality trait.

How to use Sim Characteristics

It can be hard to find the Sim Characteristics option within your game, as they are tucked away within another setting. At the top left of your screen in Create-a-Sim, look for the small hexagon that sits below your Sim's Aspiration. Then, click on it and choose Sim Characteristics with the puzzle icon. Choose the ones you'd like and then continue finishing your creations in CAS.
