    Default The use of MBTI in 'The Sims'

    I found this image. It's from The Sims on Google Play (android game).

    I thought it was an interesting coincidence that they had 16 personalities. So I attempted to type them, based on their descriptions.



    I interpreted "crazy" to mean "crazy scientist".

    Do you guys think that MBTI was referenced in the creation of these personalities? Or just coincidence?

    The expansion packs add a lot of new traits too, I think it's kind of amusing to tailor my sims into stereotypes of different mbti types ;P

    I'd have INTP as geek, INTJ as villain, and ENTP as crazy.... but your way works too :P

    I often play Sims intending for them to be a certain MBTI type. If I could pick traits for myself, they'd be Natural Born Performer, Animal Lover, Bookworm, Artistic, and (oddly enough) Loner. I definitely feel overwhelmed in giant crowds and the "Too Many People" moodlet fits how I feel. There's also one right before Sims perform with the Natural Born Performer trait that tells you they're really excited, which is exactly how I feel before a show!!

    An ESTJ Sim would probably be Ambitious, Athletic, Dislikes Art, Workaholic, and Perfectionist.

    I think it is a coincidence, since many of the names of the personalities could easily be interchanged to fit other MBTI types. The only clear correspondence is the fact there are 16.
