This game guide is for The Sims 3 only.

In The Sims 3, there are five Charisma skill challenges to complete. This tutorial will assist players in completing these challenges.


Celebrities are acquaintances with at least 25 local Sims. Celebrities are able to build relationships more quickly due to a hefty starting relationship bonus.

How To Unlock: Greet or introduce the Sim to any 25 Sims in the neighborhood. If a computer is available, this can be finished within 5 Sim hours of starting a new game. Queue as many "Chat with someone" actions as possible, cancel them as soon as a single + of influence (2-3 sec) has been gained and keep queuing more until 25 Sims have been chatted to.


Personable Sims have learned at least 50 Traits of their friends and neighbors. They are able to learn traits more quickly when conversing with new people.

How To Unlock: Chat with other Sims in the town to discover their traits. The Perceptive[TS3:A] trait will allow the Sim to learn the traits of others faster. Purchasing the Observant lifetime reward cost 5000 points, but will allow Sims to learn three of another Sim's traits just by meeting them. Vampires can learn others' traits by reading their mind.

Super FriendlyEdit

Super Friendly Sims can honestly say they have at least 20 Friends. It seems like an impossibly large number of relationships to juggle, but for Super Friendly Sims, friendships never decay.

How To Unlock: Have 20 friends. Combining the completion of the Celebrity challenge and the owning of the Attractive lifetime reward, Sims will become friends with others right after meeting them. The Long Distance Friend lifetime reward doesn't help with the completion of this challenge.

Everybody's Best FriendEdit

To be Everybody's Best Friend, have at least 10 best friends. Your Friends skip Good Friend and jump immediately to Best Friends.

How To Unlock: Completing the Celebrity and Super Friendly challenges and having the Attractive lifetime reward makes achieving this easy. The Long Distance Friend lifetime reward is not recommended due to the Super Friendly challenge awarding the same ability as the reward.


Comedians have successfully told 100 jokes, which amounts to quite a few laughs. Jokes told by comedians rarely fall flat.

How To Unlock: Tell jokes to another Sims. Sims with the Good Sense of Humor trait will complete it more easily.


  • Sims with the Friendly and Charismatic trait can complete these challenges more easily.
  • The Childish trait may be useful in completing these challenges, as it grants the "Play tag" option with other Sims.
