Trait Perfectionist.png

Perfectionist is a lifestyle trait in The Sims 3

Perfectionists spend more time cooking, writing or even painting, but what they eventually finish is noticeably better than something created by other Sims. Perfectionists accept nothing shy of perfection.


  • Perfectionist Sims do most things better than other Sims, but sometimes it just takes a bit longer.
  • The Sim can paint higher quality paintings, prepare higher quality food and write better novels.
  • This trait can help Sims becoming better architects. [TS3:A]

Unlocked interactions

  • Perfectionists can point out the flaws of other Sims in conversation, usually only available in the Mean interactions if a Sim thinks another Sim is being rude.

Player notes

  • Painting, Writing, and Cooking skills take longer to be raised than usual, but they are of higher quality.
  • Nonetheless, perfectionists can also have the slob trait.
  • This trait provides a bonus to Sims writing in the Historical genre.
  • This trait will just add to a few random activities such as moving clothes to the dryer, recycling and other things (see Neat or above)

Possible Lifetime Wishes

  • The Perfect Garden
