Trait TS4 Gloomy

Gloomy is an emotional trait in The Sims 4. It conflicts with the cheerful and hot-headed traits.

"These Sims tend to be Sad, can Share Melancholy Thoughts to other Sims, and while Sad, gain a boost to their Creative Skill."


  • Gloomy Sims randomly get a "Feeling Sad" moodlet.
  • They also get the stronger "Devastating Breakup" moodlet from breaking up, rather than the normal "Break Up Blues".
  • Occasionally, they receive a "Burdensome Bills" moodlet from paying bills.
  • When sad, gloomy Sims get this unique description: "Gloomy Sims get some of their best ideas when they're Sad. Try painting or writing a story!"
  • If they engage in creative pursuits when sad, they get a skill boost, while being able to paint sad paintings or write sad books.
  • Gloomy Sims can "Share Melancholy Thoughts" with other Sims.
  • Gloomy Sims cannot be cheered up by the "Try to cheer up" social.
