I learned this the hard way. When creating a sim, select 'No Thanks' from the quiz part, and do not click the book to add a sim. If you've already tried/done this, sorry I couldn't be much help.

Did you delete the localthumbcache file after removing your mods ?

 

Have you been using any kinds of CAS mods ?

@Beyonce14kip for premade townies or sims you've already created and exist in the world, you can't usually change traits in CAS unless you activate the cas.fulleditmode cheat before going into CAS.

If you're talking about changing traits on a sim while making them for the first time using CAS Story Mode, you can't change traits during story mode creation - those are determined by the quiz answers and are locked down. If you finish making that sim and exit CAS, you should be able to turn on the cas.fulleditmode cheat and then go back into CAS to change their traits.
