I’ve found that I now need a personality profile chart that does not include all of the traits that can be purchased with satisfaction points.  I’ve also removed any traits that are automatically given based on the chosen aspiration. 

  • If you only want to give your sims 3 traits and they roll more take the ones with the highest score.  If you still have too many (tied) roll for which one they’ll get.
  • If you have the opposite problem and didn’t get 3 look at the next lowest scale on your highest one (0 or 10) and see if there are other traits to roll for.  Example- 10 neatness is auto neat but lower on the scale there’s also foodie and squeamish.  If your highest doesn’t have additional traits move on to the next such as 9/8/7 or 1/2/3… until you find one you can use.
  • With less traits their personality won’t be as apparent in game-play but if you roll their children’s profiles based on theirs it may be more evident with them.
  • You can also use the scales to choose their aspiration, career and their actions and choices throughout their lives such as chance cards and character traits.

**Note- All character traits marked below in teal only apply with new CAS sims. If you choose to add them you’ll need to use cheats.
