The Sims 3

Workaholic is a lifestyle trait from The Sims 3. It's first available for children.

Workaholics love to work and rarely become stressed from working. Their mood suffers when they miss work, but they are able to make it up by working from home. Workaholics make the best employees.

Player Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Workaholic trait actually doesn't have any impact on how much Sims gain the job performance. The Ambitious trait, on the other hand, causes Sims to earn job performance a bit faster.
  • In The Sims 3 for Wii, it conflicts with Procrastinator and Easy Going.
  • Workaholics will reject the "Joke about Work" interaction, or when being asked about job if they are unemployed.[confirmation needed]
  • If the client of an Architectural Designer has the Workaholic trait, they will award 20 points per desk.
  • Alien's brain power need decays more slowly if they are working, while having a Couch Potato or Absent Minded trait will make it decay more quickly.
  • The "Missing Work" moodlet also applies for Sims who have been arrested during working hours of the Criminal career, causing them to become more stressed than other Sims when arrested.
  • Workaholic Sims can still become stressed from certain work-related Opportunities the same as any other Sim, regardless of how high their Fun motive bar was before the opportunity was started.
