You betcha.

Absent Minded - Sim will often stop in mid-action, disrupting progress and losing valuable time. Absent-Minded Sims sometimes turn off the television when they finish watching - even if other Sims are still watching!

Hates Outdoors - These Sims get the Plagued by Outdoors negative moodlet when they are outside for longer than just a few minutes (travel to work excluded). These Sims make poor anglers because they don't like being outside, and they cannot have the Loves the Outdoors trait.

Dislikes Children - Sims react poorly to Sims with children or on a lot with children present. Dislikes Children Sims are in a bad mood any time they are around young sims.

Okay, would you please post what the guide says about these also?
Brave, Good sense of Humor, and Family-Oriented(heh, another poster already requested this one...).

And What does it say about favorites? what does your favorite color do for you? and what does the medical career say?

Thanks again. :hug:

I've already done Natural Cook, Neat, and Handy, but here are the rest:

Great Kisser - Kisses from Great Kissers are more readily accepted and have larger positive effects on the relationship.

Athletic - Earn the Athletic skill faster than normal Sims. They also take longer to get the Fatigued moodlet. They do not like to listen to other Sims complain about exercise or athletic activities. Athletic Sims cannot take the Couch Potato trait. They get the Talk About Exercise unique social.

Family Oriented - Family Oriented Sims can help children with walking and talking better than other Sims. They also start out with even better familial relationships than other Sims. They get the unique Talk About Family social.

Flirty - Flirty Sims do exceptionally well with romantic socials and have more available right away. Massages from Flirty sims have extra positive effects. They will naturally drift towards flirting under the AI unless it would negatively affect a current relationship.

Workaholic - Workaholics finish homework faster and have fun doing it. They have a better chance at getting raises at careers. They get the Likes WOrk moodlet when working. Workaholics suffer from the Missing Work negative moodlet if they miss a shift, and can check in at work via the cellphone. Workaholics can also work from home at the computer, which helps with career advancement.

Genius - Genius Sims have accelerated learning with brain-related skills and activities such as the Logic skill or using a telescope. They do well in the Medical, Science, and Law Enforcement careers and are naturals at chess. Genius Sims often automatically use the Contemplate interaction under the AI.

Evil - Evil Sims are not discouraged by a lack of light. They also get a positive moodlet from other Sims' misery, like Very Hungry or Smelly. Natural advanced performance in the Criminal career track. Other Sims are naturally wary of an Evil Sim, especially Good Sims or Sims in the Law Enforcement career. Evil Sims cannot take the Good trait.

Kleptomaniac - Kleptomaniac Sims often come home with stolen objects, taken from work, school, or their neighbors' homes. If these are discovered by the original owner, it can severely damage relationships. Stolen objects are tagged with the object's origin. Kleptomaniacs get the Return to Owner interaction with stolen objects that results in Returned Stolen Object moodlet.

As to the Rockstar career path, you choose either it or the Symphonic career path at the sixth tier of the Music career. The Rock career can hold either two or four-hour concerts at the theater and stadium. At the top of the ROckstar career path, a Sim can select venues and choose to hold Autograph Sessions. The Rock Star also has no set schedule, holding concerts at their leisure.

Brave - Brave Sims will fight and defeat burglars. If a fire breaks out, the Brave Sim will not panic. He/she will immediately grab a fire extinguisher and put out the flames. Brave Sims do better in the Military and Law Enforcement careers. Brave Sims can sometimes demand a rise from their boss with success. Brave Sims are not scared by ghosts. Brave Sims cannot pick the Loser or Coward traits.

Good Sense of Humor - Sims with this trait have an easier time starting relationships with other Sims, even those with the No Sense of Humor trait. Jokes have a greater impact on relationships with other Sims. Sims with a Good Sense of Humor also respond well to jokes.

The guide doesn't say anything about favorite colors other than to list them. I've no idea if they have any real bearing in the game or not.

The Medical career is the highest-paying career in the game, at least in terms of the base amount it brings in, per week, at the highest tier. Medical Sims are, by nature of their type of work, more likely to get the Stressed Out negative moodlet. Medical Sims, to keep track of their hectic schedule and to be on call 24/7, get a beeper and are summoned in to work at odd, un-scheduled hours. Medical Sims can give medical advice to pregnant sims, which can lead to babies getting highly desirable traits. Medical Sims automatically have a higher chance of getting those traits in their own babies. Ultimately, Medical Sims can do what all doctors long to do: Play Golf. This used at work eliminates stress without a detriment to career performance.

Thank you so much MTCarson! You are awesome for taking the time to do this! :coolguy:
I want one of my sims to be in the medical career and its perfect for what I'm planning. :excited:

There are no longer any career objects. There -are- some objects amongst the Lifetime Rewards you can buy with your accumulated points, but all of those have been outlined on the main Snooty site here:

Can you tell us if the guide says anything about sims recognizing other sims at the top of each career. I've read that people will salute your sim if they're at the top of the Military career or ask for autographs if they're at the top of the Music career. What other things like that are there for when you're at the top of other careers?

Part Time Jobs are for just four hours each day, four days a week. They are designed not to interfere with life too much. They pay between $450-$1,315 per week. The Bookstore, Graveyard, and Grocery all offer one part-time job apiece, each with 3 levels of promotion. The Spa offers two part-time jobs, either as a Receptionist or Specialist, these two also having three levels of promotion.

I don't know what the guide says, but I can atleast say that military sims have the option to salute 'other' sims (which makes no sense to me, why would military salute civilians?)

People in the music career (and maybe some other careers?) have the option to hold autograph sessions, though I'm not sure if other sims can randomly ask for your autograph outside from holding a session. Maybe the great almighty guide knows?
