Best Skills and Traits for Tech Guru


There are two sides to the social personality spectrum: introvert and extrovert. The more you are introverted, the less social you are. That’s where the loner attribute comes in because your sims must be the least social to be a loner.

The nature of the work demands them to be on their computer, so we don’t want him socializing with other sims all-day. The loner sim will feel weird between people, so consider this before selecting this trait.


Building programs and games require high brain capacity, so genius attributes will come in handy if you choose this career. You will get more brain cloud inspiration if you are a genius. Also, you will concentrate more on pulling long hours in front of the screen.


Geek in simple language is a person obsessed and expert in his profession so having that trait in your sim is a plus if you want to excel in a tech profession.

Geeks in Sims 4 will have more fun doing tech-savvy work like playing video games and brainstorming for a program.
