Favourite Trait?

Do you have a favourite trait? Right now I'm playing my Sims 3 legacy and I love giving my sims the "family-oriented" trait because of the interactions it opens up and how quickly they build family bonds :smiley:

What is your "go to" trait? Do you have one? It could be from any of the iterations!

    One of my favorite traits was in Sims 3, and it was the shy trait.
    The really cool thing about that trait was when ever my shy sims were with two of their friends, nothing ever bothered them, and they got a wonderful mood boost with being with their friends.

    I think I'll head off and play one of them now.

    My personal favorite sim trait has got to be the “good” trait. I keep my other household sims’ needs up, so the good sim is always happy.
    I literally don't have a single household without some sort of pet help me

    I absolutely adore the Loves the Outdoors trait (from TS3). It's a guaranteed +20 moodlet whenever a sim is outside, and it supposedly makes sims better at fishing and gardening, two skills I enjoy very much. At the very least, they'll automatically be in a better mood while building their skills. I also tend to give the trait to other self-employed sims, like artists or sculptors, and put the easel or sculpting station on the porch. If you add the outdoors boost to "having a blast," at least a "nicely decorated" moodlet, and a boosted stereo blasting their favorite music, their moods are already maxed out before they do anything else. And I always like seeing my sims happy.

    I can't pick 1 favorite, so here's my top 3:


    I'm in the habit of making a lot of edgy goth Rock Star sims with these traits lol

    In sims 4 i kinda miss Sims 3 "negative" traits (just like i miss the "fears" from sims 2). My sims 3 sims were so realistic, some of the were afraid of technology, some of them hated being outside, some of them disliked really bad going fro a swim... I like those that make my sim more realistic. The ones that give personality to my sims.

    My most fav trait was only in Sims 3 - the Proper trait. I was so happy to have that trait and really miss it.

    I also like the Sims 3 version of the loner trait - it is spot on compared to other versions of that trait we had. But the most fun trait I ever had has to be the Coward trait. Caused me to go in fits of giggles more times than I could count in Sims 3. My most played traits seem to be loves outdoors, genius, and friendly.

    I do not like any of the mean traits or evil traits - as I do not enjoy seeing deviate behaviors in my game from my own sims (oddly I don't mind having others sims in my game that do have those traits if they are Vamps anyway, I just don't play them but do not mind interacting with them) - that said though I do think the Sims 4 sims are a bit too smiley and happy acting for my comfort level most of the time. I also never give any sims the traits of hating kids or animals or being mean to anyone. I suppose I enjoy my Lala Land but truthfully wish they were a little more normal acting. I mean Sims really should get and act angry to a sim that makes them mad - not smile and keep befriending that Sim. Maybe walk away in a huff - let that sim know you've made them angry. That I would find normal in even the nicest sim. So I could see some adjustments in behaviors of the sims of all traits.

    I have a dilemma between genius and good trait. I cannot choose what to prefer over the other :P

    I love the "romantic" Trait, but at the same time I really enjoy giving my sims unusual combinations of traits such as, Ambitious maniacs with a passion for painting.

    I like the unflirty trait
    the sims 4 isn't getting new whims right now and I think they have dropped them all together if we want new whims in sims 4 we need to tweet the gurus and tell them we like whims

    no traits in sims 1, but I will see those eventually as I will play the other sims game eventually :)

    Absent-minded, brooding, and heavy sleeper from TS3 and hot-headed, childish, and clumsy from TS4! lot of TS3 traits I'd love to see added in TS4 to add some variety.

    In the sims 3 console I used the good trait a lot as it gave a discount to positive karma powers. I also use loves the outdoors a lot on starting sims as they tend to literally live outside :smiley:

    In TS4 I use unflirty, cheerful and loner :smile:
