Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 18.104.22.1680
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Create a new sim and check the Simology panel - Public Image.
What happens when the bug occurs? Every new sim I create has one bar into the negative in Reputation.
What do you expect to see? For reputation to be completely neutral on a sim fresh out of CAS.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure
Someone asked about this issue on the official Sims forums. I searched here, but couldn't find any posts about it.
The issue is in short, a newly created sim, fresh out of CAS, has a slight negative reputation (1 "bar"), when it "should" be completely neutral.
I have tested this with and without mods. The result is the same.

@koba_sueMight be dependant on the age of the save. If its a fairly new save, all created or randomly generated (including premades) might have it. I've not checked any of them, except my own sim.
Edit: In a new, not-played save Johnny Zest and the Roomies households all had the same thing. All I've done in that save is to create a sim and move her into a house.
From what I see not many people have the same issue. Restarted the game, Origin, even my PC. Repair, reinstall, whole clean wipe of both Sims 4 and Origin with rest of %AppData% files and Document files were removed and cleaned - no result. Very irritating if I have to say.
I'm currently having the exact same issue. Having to use the cheat to reset their reputation. It's frustrating as sims act on people's reputation, so they treat my sims like pariahs
