This Sims 3 Guide was originally written for the PC and Mac versions of the game, but also will help owners of the console versions - PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii. Please remember some info or numbers may have changed.
Welcome to my The Sims 3 Charisma skill guide. Here, I'll try to go over the basics of this skill. You'll learn of ways that charisma can benefit your Sims, get help with completing each of the charisma challenges in the Sims 3, and help Sims fall in love. I'll also cover how to raise charisma as quickly as possible without cheating, for those who want to know.
The World Adventures expansion provides many more opportunities to make use of your Sim's charisma skill. Building friendships in the new travel destinations can save you a lot of time and trouble when pursuing adventures. It's much easier when asked to request a favor from some of the locals if your Sim already has friends in the Country they're visiting.
Charisma is the Socializing skill of the Sims 3. With a higher charisma level, your Sim will have an easier time making friends. What's more, they'll additionally be able to keep those friendships longer. This is not a skill everyone goes for, as often having a lot of friends doesn't really give a great benefit. Still, the social interactions Sims perform can be entertaining. Watching Sims' animations as they laugh, chat it up and talk about subjects that interest them provides a fun experience.
If you don't much care for making friends, there are other reasons to invest the time it takes to learn charisma. The skill offers a number of opportunities that can incur cash bonuses, and of course boost relations with other Sims and increase the charisma skill level. As your Sim gains interest in charisma, they'll also have plenty of friend and party-based wishes to help you gain lifetime happiness points for them. Simple wishes like meeting a new Sim, or inviting over a friend can deliver a small boost to help gain points. There are also wishes that deliver huge bonuses like having over ten friends, and throwing an awesome party.
Charisma is also used by several careers in the Sims 3, as you might expect. The political career track of course relies heavily on this skill. Musicians will also benefit from a high level of charisma. Actually, any career that lists co-workers and boss as factors for promotion will benefit from more charisma. Being able to invite your co-workers over to win their friendship quickly will allow you to focus on other job performance factors, resulting in faster promotions.
The last perk of the charisma skill, is that it can help your Sim to learn the traits of others. Use the get to know social skill and your Sim will chat with the other person and learn their traits. This can be useful for cooking their favorite meals at a party, or ensuring you play their favorite music. This can be helpful for Sims looking for that significant other.
