Logic is a skill in The Sims series. It is a valuable skill for many careers and playing games like chess. In The Sims: Makin' Magic, it improves spell casting, affects how many MagiCoins a Sim will get for performing on the stone stage or at the tricks tables in Magic Town, and may affect the performance of other magical acts.
In The Sims 2, logic also affects the odds of winning a chess game. With The Sims 2: University, teenagers with a high logic skill (level 8 or higher) qualify for the Will Wright Genius Grant, which is a §750 scholarship. Logic increases the rate at which a Sim earns the Register talent badge from The Sims 2: Open for Business. With The Sims 2: FreeTime, having high logic makes it easier for Sims to maintain high enthusiasm for the games and science hobbies. Additionally, all Sims in The Sims 2 who have 10 points in logic get a 35% boost when learning other skills, except for body and charisma.

Increasing a Sim's logic skill gives the Sim certain special interactions:
|3||Search Galaxy||Allows the Sim to find and name stars for simoleons.|
|5||Tutor Children||Allows the Sim to tutor children to increase the child's grades. Increases the Logic skill of both Sims if they have learned it.|
|10||Tutor Sims for Skill||Allows the Sim to teach other Sims skills they know.|
When using a telescope and searching the galaxy, a Sim will sometimes discover a celestial body. It may be a comet, planet, star, moon, galaxy, black hole, neutron or satellite. The Sim will then earn a small amount of money or up to several thousand (for discovering a black hole) for contributing to the scientific community.
Also, Sims may see a meteor fall from the sky and land somewhere in town. They can use Map View to find the land site and travel there to collect the space rock. There is also a chance that the meteor will fall on them.

However, the Sim does have another opportunity to discover each potion for free once.

The Sims 4
In The Sims 4 is augmented by the genius trait, as it will occasionally give a focused moodlet, with focused being the ideal emotion for building logic skill. Gaining logic skill is required for the Nerd Brain aspiration and also for some careers.
Similarly to the previous games, Sims with higher logic skill increase their chances of winning at games like chess. Logic skill is also tied to collecting, with benefits relating to this including the ability to collect and analyze plant, crystal and fossil samples at levels 2, 5 and 8 respectively. Also, Sims can unlock several Logic based interactions: 'Discuss Logic', 'Provide Logical Solution to Problems' and 'Rant Logically'.
