Not to be confused with Inspiration.

Inspired is an emotion available in The Sims 4. It occurs when a Sim engages in creative activities. This emotion can evolve into very inspired. It can be from singing in the shower. On the computer, they can write books. They will get a 'Writer's Block' moodlet if they wrote too many books.

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


  • Talk about Dreams
  • Serenade
  • Describe New Idea
  • Propose Crazy Scheme


  • Paint Classical painting
  • Look into the stars or clouds (self interaction)

  • Buy a bar
  • Buy a musical instrument

Object Auras[]

These are items found, bought, or earned in the game that can emit an inspiring 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 an inspired moodlet. Whether their mood changes to inspired or not depends on the other moodlets affecting the Sim at that time.

Careers and Jobs[]

Sims with these jobs or careers will gain work performance if they go to work while inspired.


  • When the game first came out, Very Inspired was called "Imaginative".
  • Using a laser pointer while Inspired will make the light match the emotion's color and take on the shape of a butterfly.
