The Sims 4 – Beginner Traits

People have their quirks, their merits, and even their flaws. Sims are no different from real people as EA has given Sim characters lots of traits to choose from in The Sims 4. Some of the traits are great while others are not so great, but that depends on the type of Sim a player is intending on creating.

Unlike beginner aspirations, beginner traits are not limited to any age Sim to be taken. The only limitations that traits have is how many a Sim gets based on their age range. Those limitations are:

  • Child Sims = 1 Trait
  • Teen Sims = 2 Traits
  • Young Adults, Adults, and Elders = 3 Traits

Traits are broken up into four categories: emotional, hobby, lifestyle, and social. Sims get boosts from traits they choose as well as some new actions.

Emotional Traits

The Sims 4 is all about human emotion, so there are several emotional traits available to choose from.
