The Sims 4: Trait Cheats

Since The Sims 4 only allows our sims to be equipped with 3 traits when they are created, sometimes we’d like to add some new ones and the only way to do that is through cheats or earning some reward traits, cheating is always easier!

This guide is going to go through the entire list of trait cheats that you can use to equip your sim’s with all sorts of new traits and make them a more well-rounded and interesting sim.

How to Use Cheats

If you want to use any of these cheats, you need to make sure that cheats are enabled before doing anything! First you need to open up the cheat box by hitting ctrl + shift + c and then typing in testingcheats true which will allow cheats to work. Then you can just type in any of the trait cheats listed below, and they should work.

Regular Trait Cheats

The following are the cheats to add some new regular traits into your sim’s personality. These are the types of traits that you would be able to give your sim when you make them in create a sim, or when they are aging up.

Could you include Hidden Traits in the list too? Like right-handed/left-handed, likes/dislikes fruitcake, etc. Maybe ghost death traits as well (e.g. traits.equip_trait trait_ghost_fire)?

Player trait adds wonderfully, thanks very much for the thorough and accurate guide! Been helping my Sims overcome their violent jealousies by giving them all the Player trait with this cheat for years, lol.

Hi! So I'm using the Slice Of Life mod and I'm trying to get the introvert trait in it but it says it's part of a script mod; do you know how I could activate it? I've looked it up and everything and google isn't helpful


Monday 4th of April 2022

Hi, everyone! I'm new to The Sims 4, after not having played since The Sims 2. I'm working my way through the cheats and just cannot seem to find one to add the "Confidante" trait from the "Neighborhood Confidante" aspiration. *traits.equip_trait ???*

Thanks for your time!
