While playing The Sims 4, aspects of your Sim's life (such as their family dynamics and traits) can affect the decisions that they make. This means you may feel the need to change a trait to something else in order to alter your Sim's personality to your liking. If you want to remove a trait in The Sims 4, you'll need to edit it in Create-a-Sim.

But first, you will need to enable this editing via your cheats command console. To do this:

  • Type Ctrl+Shift+C and look for the white text box in the top-left of the screen.
  • Write testingcheats true into the box and hit Enter.
  • Type cas.fulleditmode into the same box and select Enter.
  • Go to a household Sim and hit Shift on your keyboard at the same time that you click on the Sim (Shift+Click). Choose the option that says Modify in CAS.
  • From here, click the X in the corner of the hexagon with the trait you don't want. Now the trait is gone!
