    I hope to add to this guide as suggestions / fixes come in, as well as a few
    other things dealing with specific traits including, but not limited to:
    
    - Moodlets associated with a given trait
    - Actual game play effects of certain traits
      - Time taken to learn skills with/without Bookworm, Handy, Charismatic, etc
      - Time taken to gain / lose friends for social traits
      - etc.
    
    I'll start from the beginning of the guide and work my way down adding this
    information to the traits as I discover it - after I think I've discovered
    most of the information for a given trait I'll move on. I'll be doing five
    traits at once - this MAY lead to inaccurate results ( although I plan to
    do tests to compensate ) - if anybody finds any inaccurate information 
    PLEASE let me know!

     (1) Introduction
    ------------------
    
    The Sims 3 is the third installment of the popular series "The Sims." Along
    with numerous other improvements, The Sim's creators have introduced a myriad
    of traits to customize your Sims, allowing you to excel ( or fail ) in certain
    areas.
    
    This guide will list every trait, and the bonuses or drawbacks associated with 
    that trait. Many traits will allow you to become successful in one ( or many )
    careers, while others will only hinder you. This guide is not intended to be
    a comprehensive guide for The Sims 3. If you are looking for a full guide
    please check out the other guides found here on GameFAQs.

     (2.0) The Traits
    -----------------
    
    When creating a Sim, the final tab allows you to alter your personality. These
    are the choices that will have the largest affect on your Sim throughout their
    life. Traits, Lifetime Goals, and Favorites are available for customization.
    
    Depending on the age of your Sim, you will be allowed to choose a certain
