Emotion - Focused.png
A Focused Sim

Focused is an emotion available in The Sims 4. It occurs when a Sim engages in mentally stimulating tasks. A Sim with this emotion can progress to feeling very focused.

Interactions and Activities[]

Sims will only have a chance to use these interactions and do these activities while focused.



  • Mathematical Drawing (easel)
  • Chess

Supportive Traits[]

These traits affect how often a Sim is focused.

Object Auras[]

These are items found, bought, or earned in the game that can emit a focus aura in the area around the object. Players can choose to enable or disable the aura at any time. Once enabled, a Sim can interact with the object, through viewing or using it, and they will earn a +# focus moodlet. Whether their mood changes to focused or not depends on the other moodlets affecting the Sim at that time.
