UPDATE NOTICE
As of 10/3/21, I have updated and overhauled the traits in this pack, and added two more. They should be up to date and finally work again. Please let me know if you have any feedback. Cheers!




OPTIMISTIC
"This sim sees the positive in almost every situation. The glass is not only half full, it's also a very pretty glass!"



PESSIMISTIC
"What can be said of this sim? No matter what's happening, they always see the negative side of things. They have no shortage of things to complain about, build relationships slower, and tend to react negatively to good news."


BOSSY
"Some sims are simply bossy, and although they don't mean any harm, they can really irritate other sims."





EXTREME
"Most sims are boring, but some sims are EXTREME! These sims crave stimulation, get powerful moodlets from activities they deem 'extreme,' and do well in the Secret Agent career."




QUEEN
"These sims are fabulous, and don't you forget it honey! They tend to be confident, build friendships slower, and can have a nasty temper when provoked. They build charisma quickly and excel in the Entertainer and Style Influencer careers. They never apologize to anyone for being themselves. Slay, Queen, slay!



LEARNING DIFFICULTY
"Some sims are Geniuses, some are average, and other sims have learning difficulties. This is one such sim. This doesn't mean they can't flourish; they just have to work harder for it!"



HYPOCHONDRIAC
"Getting sick is a natural part of life, but for this sim, it's one of their biggest fears! They always think they're coming down with something, and really stress themselves out."



SARCASTIC
"What can be said of this sim? No matter what's happening, they always see the negative side of things. They have no shortage of things to complain about, build relationships slower, and tend to react negatively to good news."



Disclaimer: the Learning Difficulty trait is, quite obviously, a sim-fictionalized version of having a learning disability. I am certainly not making light of people who have such problems. I have a learning disability myself. It's called dyscalculia, and it means I have a very difficult time understanding anything related to math or numbers. So I'm very aware of the frustration and pain of having a learning disability. But that's exactly why I added this trait. Some of us have a harder time than others, and that's just a part of life. And this is a life simulation game. I wanted to add the chance that people like me can be represented. I honestly think there's far too much pressure on people to be "perfect," which is an unattainable goal, and it breeds a negative reaction toward people with more obvious imperfections. There's nothing wrong with not being good at something. There's no shame in not being capable of something that someone else is capable of. People are all different. We have our strengths and weaknesses, and they vary person to person. If you want that reflected in your game, awesome. And if you don't, that's okay too. You certainly don't have to use this trait if it bothers you. If, after reading this, you still feel the need to leave a reasonable, rational comment about it, please do! I'd be more than happy to read it.


Take care, and happy simming!
-Jessie Nebulous

Default Getting some LEs when loading into my save files
I'm not sure why but when I load into my saves these traits seem to give me a LastException. I uploaded both the MC LE and the BE LE as I'm not sure which one you find to be more useful, though I had to change the file type to txt in order to upload them here, they're originally html files, but i thought having these might help possibly. Thank you for sharing your traits with us by the way! I appreciate the work and effort put into making them!
Download - please read all instructions before downloading any files!

Thank you. I'll take a look at the files and see if I can figure out what the issue is. And you're very welcome; I love making new stuff for the Sims 4, and it's very gratifying to hear that people enjoy my efforts
