But if you get bored of it, know that you can use the cheat to max out skills instantly and be done with it. If not, stick to these tips on how to level up the charisma skill in The Sims 4!

The Charisma Skill in The Sims 4

Much like in the real world, charismatic characters simply get more from life than regular people. And so Sims, with exceedingly high charisma skill, open up more conversation options for you. For example, you can have a Smooth Apology. This option allows your Sim to reverse an awkward situation or be excused of something that would generally be regarded as bad.

Another good one is the Sweet Talk. Charismatic Sims can “sweet talk” their way into anything because they know how to be persistent and likable. They can also Ask for Loan, either a big or a small one. This lets them have more money and live a better life. But, the charisma skill in The Sims 4 can also let you Donate to Online Charity, as well as have more friends through Introductions

Charisma Skill Levels

As with many other skills in The Sims 4, the charisma one has 10 available levels.

  • Level 1: Perform Friendly Greet or Charming Introduction.
  • Level 2: Perform Amusing Greet.
  • Level 3: Perform Interesting Greet or Get to Know.
  • Level 4: Perform Flirty Greet.
  • Level 5: Perform Affectionate Greet or Smooth Recovery.
  • Level 6: Perform Funny Greet.
  • Level 7: Perform Impressive Greet.
  • Level 8: Perform Hilarious Greet.
  • Level 9: Perform Loving Greet.
  • Level 10: Perform Irresistible Greet.

Leveling Up

If you want to quickly level up the charisma skill in The Sims 4, then here is what you need to do.

First of all, there are two moods to chase here: Confident and Happy. Both of these affect the success rate of your charisma skill, though they differ a bit. The Confident mood directly impacts the charisma skill, while the Happy mood impacts all the skills in general. You should aim for both, although the Confident one might be easier to catch. For mood cheats, see this post.

Next, you start by talking to yourself in the mirror. Note that you could also use a skill book to increase your charisma skill. But since this is significantly slower than the mirror method, we advise for the latter one.

And lastly, each time you reach a new level, you should try the new interactions. They may reward you greatly and boost your skill up. Unlocking new interactions and performing them is a good way of leveling up your charisma skill and not getting bored watching your Sim doing silly stuff alone.
