for me it'd be family and i think thats because whenever i hear someone doesn't like kids i just end up being like "oh but why! babies are cute! you can never have enough kids..."

and i'm not sure if i'd have room for a secondary aspiration because i'm so much of a family sim but i'd pick knowledge or pleasure.

Seeking Knowledge. I kinda lack off interest, probably due to the school's education system killing it. I'm kinda clueless on the most part and I really wanna learn as much as possible. I did in the past wish to be, so to speak, being a Pleasure/Popularity type of wanting guy because I really hated myself for being too introverted/anti-social "freak", but I'm starting to accept that fact on whom I am and I really can't change that I'm not so good at being charismatic (If I have any).

BTW great thread you thought off.

I'm a bit torn between Knowledge (which is probably the most likely) and Romance, which I think I'd really rather like to be. In Real Life I've never had a proper relationship, a first kiss or even a flirt, but maybe I can overcome all that as a Sim, and be at the heart of one of those polyamorous groups where everybody loves everybody else. I wouldn't want to hurt anyone or break up their relationships, but, when I see how happy my Sims can look in another Sim's arms, I'm sometimes just a little bit envious.

[EDIT] There have been previous threads like this, but they were a few years ago.

To me, babies are like sushi. You can never have too many.

Knowledge/Family. My family is very important to me, but I have no desire for 10 kids. ;) (I have two, for the record, and that's probably enough.)

:here: A-/Demi-Sexual so Romance is the least related one to me.
At least how I feel about my sexual orientation, Almost 29, the first and last encounter was a decade ago and a "puppy love" a few years ago. :rolleyes: or how I like to joke about it: Being together with someone more than friends is fine as I develope crushes, but without the WOOHOO-part, so the date pool would be rather slim. I'm not into marriage life, so I can't say a person who wait with woohoo after marriage is ideal exactly either. :rofl:

:here: Agoraphobic so I prefer family time over heaps of friends of a Popularity Sim. I dont do parties nor date but I do outing with family and closer relatives.
:here: Having a Asperger syndrome and it seems impossible without having a panic attack to have a "normal" job. Like money but not desperate for it, as I long I live a decent life and do fun things once in a while, I don't need luxury stuff, So Fortune is also unlikely.
:here: Grilled Cheese? Ermmm I love Cheese based food (Omelette, Tomato sauce and Pasta with Cheese), but not much into sandwiches.... so nope.

I can relate myself most to Knowledge and Pleasure. Learn new things and enjoy family/relative and leisure life without having kids or dating (so Im 100% I'm not family type and apart from dating, pleasure is closer related to me than popularity/fortune). ;)

:rofl:

:here: A-/Demi-Sexual so Romance is the least related one to me.

I am concerned... I am a demisexual as well and my main aspiration would be Knowledge, and my secondary would be Romance. Well, I probably should not worry. If only the game would not sum up romance as practically 'WooHoo with 20 different sims' :rofl:

My sims are usually Family ones... I wonder why. I have decided a long, long time ago that I will never have children. Makes one think.

Florentzina
11th Feb 2018, 1:05 AM
Actually I'm the same with family Sims. I breed them like crazy in game but hearing a baby cry in real life gives me panic attack. When I was a kid I often told my parents I wanted children just to lock them in the bathroom when they are badly behaved... But even now I still never want to have kids despite loving Sims 2 genetics. :rofl:

Well, as far as Romance goes. I will associate that aspiration with "flirt, woohoo, flirt cheat, woohoo" route or the open relationship: "Woohoo buddy". :rofl:

Since there's no Creativity aspiration (a gross oversight on Eaxis' part), I guess I'd say Knowledge.

I wish I was Fortune...maybe I'd be able to pay off those damn student loans, then.

100% Knowledge here, and naturally I've always had a soft spot for Knowledge sims. If I had a secondary aspiration, it'd have to be Popularity, which is a little weird because I'm such an introvert. Nonetheless, most of the key things I've achieved in life are through building positive relationships with people in my community. It's important!

Fortune - I went to private school, got a 4 year scholarship in university and graduated with honors but despite all that I already had multiple breakdowns IRL due to not making enough money to make ends meet. Since the pay for my field is more often than not, a joke, I'm running my own business right now. I'd want to marry a rich guy to make life a little bit easier but maybe that's not the best solution. I want to make it by my own power.

Hopefully my sim counterpart has a better life than me so she won't have to give up her dreams just to survive.

Secondary would be Grilled Cheese. I'm Fortune first and foremost, so I'm insanely thrifty. What better way to cheer yourself up with the delicious, crunchy, cheesy, sumptuous grilled cheese? It won't hurt anyone's pocket. Old bread and weeks old cheese can taste decent when you grill it. Just make sure they're not moldy.

This is an interesting thread, for sure. I think I'm most likely a Knowledge/Family aspiration, as I feel utterly useless and directionless if I'm not educating myself in some way. I'm a ravenous reader and plow through books like crazy, love to learn the ins-and-outs of all kinds of things, and love to create, most of all, my own work. Whether it's writing, traditional art, acting, music, or cooking, I love learning and being able to apply that knowledge to the physical world. Beyond that, I have a fervent desire to pursue and strengthen my relationship with my partner and solidify our future together so I can raise the healthy, happy family I never had as a child. Abusive parents suck! Learn to communicate in a healthy way with your children and save them a lot of heartache and pain in their futures from trying to fill that void where parental love and support should be with just about anything else. (Also why my career is in childcare and sociology.)

I would be Knowledge/Pleasure.

I love learning new things and would definitely have a Knowledge primary.

I don't want children (though I do hope to marry my current partner), so not Family. I have little interest in earning lots of money and as I am Autistic and have mental health issues I don't really want to get promoted at work as I wouldn't be able to cope with the increased working hours and pressure, so not Fortune. I don't like parties and I only have a few friends, so not Popularity. I am quite happy in a monogamous relationship with my current partner, so not Romance. Pleasure works well for me - I like going on dates/spending time with my partner, I like going on outings to museums and Kew Gardens and nature reserves with my family and friends and I enjoy going out for meals. Plus I love spending time at home in my pyjamas playing computer games!

So yes, definitely Knowledge/Pleasure!

Pleasure with knowledge secondary. I like my hobbies like reading and playing Sims, and just trying to relax and enjoy myself as I deal with chronic pain and such. I do also however like to learn new things as well.

Family- Nope, no kids for me thank you very much!
Popularity- Excuse me while I laugh...and laugh...and laugh...XD I'm both shy and introverted. I mostly just want to be left alone in real life.
Fortune- If I have enough to live comfortably i'm good.
Romance- I'm married and I do love my spouse. I have no desire to cheat or anything and even if you just want to go by being romantic I wouldn't really know romance if it bit me on the nose.
Grilled Cheese- I do like Grilled Cheese...but I don't worship it :p

Family; everything I do in life is with the intention of providing the best possible life for my future children/family. My dream job is to be a stay at home mother. But sadly that doesn't pay the bills so I have to settle for Neuropsychologist. :lol:
Knowledge as a secondary because I love learning things, especially to do with the brain.

Of course I'm strongly influenced by my original gay teen Andrew and his mum Gloria (Romance). Gloria has just been such an outstandingly good mum to Andrew, and the boy won't hear a word against her. She's actually a more caring mother than some Family Sims I could think of.

Family as a primary. It was all I've ever wanted for myself, and that's never changed.

As a secondary, I'd go with knowledge. I've always loved learning things, and frankly, I'm pretty good at it most of the time.

I'm not extroverted. I'm introverted almost to the extreme. Popularity strikes me as time-consuming and tiresome. With teaching as a profession, I've accepted that it's more than likely I'll never have a fortune stashed away somewhere. Although, it wouldn't hurt...

As a child I was a little Family Sim. I always wanted to have lots of children later.

Now it's Pleasure/Knowledge. I like learning new things, but I even more like to do just whatever I want at that moment. I would like to have a partner one day - but no children (pets are enough), no boatloads of friends, no lots of money (though it would be nice), no endless cheating. But my Sims love all those things, so I guess there's a little bit of everything inside of me.

Knowledge/Pleasure. Knowledge is my natural state. Pleasure is my ADHD, throwing in wants like "Stay home from work" and "play a computer game" that I had to learn to ignore.

Knowledge as my primary. To know all about the universe and creation from the Planck length to the outer limits of observational space.
Family as my secondary aspiration, I want 4 kids preferably but also want to have/maintain good relationships with my family.

A meat pie? With cheese? No no no. Just a fruit pie. Actually you could leave off the "pie" part (the crust) and give me the fruit --guess that would be just eating preserves. Ok, just CAKE. O never mind, these aren't "aspirations" anyway. Well, I DO aspire to be thin, but with all that pie/cake/cookies THAT'S not gonna happen.
Ok, I'm just "leasure", but with no cheese samitches just bouncing on couch in PJs, watching the TV, playing with the cat, bird watching, and talking.
PS just saw pic above; yes that's what grilled cheese tastes like to me.
Have to go now and have CT scan of head again, something was missing on the first one; probably that part of the brain that remembers spelling, math, and names.

Mine keeps toggling between primary and secondary but it's Popularity and Pleasure. I think primary leans toward pleasure the older I get. Fun things drive my actions, and as you can imagine it takes me weeks to actually do laundry because that's responsible and not as fun as doing something sim-related every night after work.
