"These sims are half full"

Bright and cheery despite when it's gloomy and weary for your sims! These sims are optimists, hence the trait name of optimist, and will act accordingly. They build relationships with other sims faster and tend to be social butterflies so make sure they've got plenty of friends! This trait mixes the cheerful trait with the happy and energized whims so your sims are always ready to be the new annoyingly bright thing next to the sun itself! They may want to hug other sims, tell jokes, and constantly meet new sims.

"These sims are half empty"

Last name "Downer", first name "Debbie"--that's how most sims would describe sims with the cynical trait. If you've ever wanted to darken every day in your sims life with a shadow of gloom and a hint of anger at the loss of faith in sim-kind, then look no further! The cynical trait blends a little bit of anger with a tad of boredom and the gloomy trait so they'll always be the wet blanket at your next get together! Their social needs decay slower because they have a harder time making friends (mostly because they kick trash in their free time), so your social recluse is available on even the sunniest of days.

Neither trait should interfere with existing mods or game defaults.

hi hi just wanted to say thanks for these cool traits. And sorry one quick question. The Cynical trait doesn't show up in my Cas, do I get it somewhere else?

These are nice traits! However, instead of the 'Cynical' trait, 'Wet n' Wild' shows up. Is this happening for anyone else?

The cynical trait isn't in my game, only optimist.

I was wondering where I got a wet n' wild trait. That's not even a vanilla trait. It's like the opposite of cynical. Perhaps it's a joke.

I also didn't get the Cynical trait. I was curious as to where the "Wet n' Wild" trait came from; was it uploaded on accident?

It showed up as gloomy. Is that what it's supposed to be?

Yep, getting Wet n' Wild instead of Cynical. Is that a bug or a joke?...

When I look inside the package, all I see is the optimist trait, and not the cynical trait. Did you forget to add it or something?

It's my favourite trait as I started using it a couple weeks ago with a new sim. Hilarious in Funny Interactions! Thanks!

No... traits break easily, they don't survive multiple years without updates.
