Hydrophobic is a physical trait in The Sims 3. It conflicts with the Loves To Swim[TS3:IP] and Loves Water[TS3 Wii] traits.

Hydrophobic Sims are terrified of swimming. They loathe every second they have to spend in the pool.

Attributes[edit | edit source]

  • If the "Splash" interaction is used on a hydrophobic Sim being forced to swim, they will appear to plead pitifully with the Sim splashing them rather than getting irritated or angry.
  • Contrary to popular belief, a Sim with this trait is not excluded from the "Duck Time" moodlet when bathing.

  • Hydrophobic Sims will flat out refuse gift if the gift is Fish Bowl.

  • There is a possibility that Trying for Baby in a shower increases the chance of the baby being born with the hydrophobic trait.
