Poppy lives in Enoshima and likes to read novels and play video games, especially open-world RPGs.

The Sims games have entertained players for two decades with releases of the entertaining and time-consuming simulation games since the original The Sims in 2000.

The Sims 4 offers even more details with our creations, and as well as the classic needs (hunger, bathroom, hygiene, sleep, fun, and social), things like aspirations, whims, and moodlets have enriched our gaming experience and made Sims unique.


One great feature of the newest Sims installment is Sims' moods, which are affected by behavior, environment, social situations, and needs levels. Some of the positive moods include the following:

  • Happy
  • Confident
  • Playful
  • Flirty
  • Inspired
  • Focused
  • Energized

When your Sim is confident or very confident, they get boosts and extra options in social situations, extra options when looking at a mirror, and the ability to write motivational books and paint confident paintings. Read on for tips on how to make your Sim confident!

1. Self-Assured

Each Sim has four different traits which you can choose in character creation. One of these traits is "Self-Assured." A Sim who is self-assured will be confident more often!
