The best way to obtain Satisfaction points (without cheats) is by fulfilling your Sim’s aspiration. This is essentially the main life goal of your Sim; in the image above, you can see that the selected Sim wants to become a musical genius.

By completing the tasks listed, you will receive Satisfaction points. Each aspiration has four tiers for you to complete, with every tier rewarding you with Satisfaction points. Overall, you can earn thousands of points this way.

You will be able to change your aspiration, but it’s important to note that the Trait gained from the skill cannot be changed. The first aspiration you choose essentially sets the groundwork for your personality.

Completing Wants To Get Satisfaction Points

Previously called Whims, Wants are things that your Sim wants to do. Typically, these reward you with a small amount of Satisfaction points.

Above, you can see a Sim with a Want highlighted. If this Sim earns $50 in tips, the Want will be complete, earning them 50 Satisfaction points.

Wants will appear based on what is happening around you, but can also be influenced by personality and aspiration. In the example above, our Sim wants to be tipped while playing an instrument because she has the musical genius aspiration.
