    Default MBTI Types as Sims

    If you were to create a Sim of each of the 16 types, what would their personality traits be (i.e. neat, outgoing, active, playful and nice)?

    For those of you who aren't familiar with the Sims' personality traits, the player is given 25 points to distribute among the five ten-point scales. You do not have to use all the points.

    Let's see, mostly:

    Neat: P/J
    Outgoing: I/E
    Nice: T/F
    Active: N/S
    Playful: J/P (weaker)

    INFJ:

    Neat: 7/10
    Outgoing: 4/10
    Nice: 7/10
    Active: 3/10
    Playful: 3/10

    Well... that would be a typical INFJ, I think. I'm probably a little below average in outgoingness...

    Forgive me, for I've never played The Sims, but are those actual categories that sum up characters in the game?

    (When I played sim-type games, it was Roller Coaster Tycoon.)

    This just reminded me that we should write to EA Games and suggest they change it to MBTI types instead of astrological signs.

    Er...for myself:

    INFJ:

    Neat: 4/10
    Outgoing: 3/10
    Nice: 7/10
    Active: 3/10
    Playful: 6/10

    It sounds like they'd be better off using the FFM, since this, too, has five dichotomies, or even 16 PF to make your characters more complex.

    Good point.

    Oh! Maybe they could even give you options to infuse certain tics and body language gestures on your sims. So that when they said a certain sim word or whatever they'd scratch their nose. And what if other sims could misunderstand that as some sort of secret signal where you'd have one sim scratching their nose or flicking imaginary dirt off their collar, and all the sudden you'd have the bomb squad surrounding the house looking for a criminal that ended up being the Servo or the potted plant in the corner.
