Trait Clumsy
Clumsy is a physical trait in The Sims 3. It conflicts with the Natural Born Performer trait.

Clumsy Sims muck up both precious and every day moments in life with shoddy footwork and poor planning. What else is there to say? Your Sim is Clumsy, and not so hot on their feet.


  • Examples of clumsiness include - nearly tripping on short stairs, tripping over nothing when attempting to move, dropping food, losing fish and dropping engagement rings during proposals.
  • Clumsy Sims break objects more frequently, and at times will feel ashamed and want to repair it.
  • If Clumsy Sims are Cooking, will sometimes stop cooking at an oven, starting a fire when they are Cooking.
  • Clumsy Sims are not good at the Acrobat and Magician careers in Showtime since they have higher chance to fail their tricks.
  • Clumsy Sims will occasionally trip when they stop walking
