Lifetime Wishes: Illustrious Author, Professional Author
This is a bread and butter trait for making a great Author, as the lifetime wishes associated with it imply. Since writers need to spend most of the day behind the computer, they can do so alone in the bedroom (or just at home if they're single) and get an Enjoying Solitude moodlet at a whopping +15 to mood. Additionally, they can get by without socializing as often because it's just not as strong a need for loners.

The downside? A -15 'Too Many People' moodlet when in a room with 2 or more other Sims.

The bonus and penalties apply to Sims within a range of about 5 tiles. Loners are more likely to autonomously hang out in the bedroom, find it harder to socialize, and won't stay grouped with any more than 3 Sims.

Thanks to Thalassicus at our forum for providing further details on how this trait works.

Since this trait is associated with introversion, shouldn't there be another moodlet that makes your sim tired or worn out after a long social event?

Have you notice that a Loner Sims lose the social need slower than normal sims?
