Skill TS4 Mental

Mental is a skill category in The Sims 4. It has a special skill for children, and an aspiration dedicated to it. Mental skills are augmented by being focused. Such skills are: Fishing, Gardening, Handiness, Logic, Programming, Rocket Science, and Video Gaming. The child skill can be gained by playing chess and video games, and using the Junior Wizard Starter Set.


The minds of children may be physically smaller, but they are also less cluttered with junk, like fun facts about llamas or algebra. Kids that can hone their mental muscle early may find themselves more easily able to grasp more complex logic later in life.
