I was inspired to start this thread after reading this page here. It's about the individual Aspirations in The Sims 2 and the overall compatibility they have with the other aspirations.

Here is a list of the overall compatible and incompatible aspirations based on the information from the Chemistry page:

Aspiration High Chemistry Medium Chemistry Low Chemistry Neutral Chemistry Poor Chemistry
Family Family / Knowledge Fortune / Grilled Cheese N/A Pleasure / Popularity Romance
Fortune Fortune Family / Popularity Knowledge / Romance Pleasure Grilled Cheese
Knowledge Family / Knowledge N/A Fortune / Grilled Cheese Popularity / Romance Pleasure
Romance Pleasure / Romance N/A Fortune / Popularity Grilled Cheese / Knowledge Family
Popularity Popularity Fortune / Pleasure Romance Family / Knowledge Grilled Cheese
Pleasure Pleasure / Romance Grilled Cheese / Popularity N/A Family / Fortune Knowledge
Grilled Cheese Grilled Cheese Family / Pleasure Knowledge Romance Fortune / Popularity

Here is my adaption of the good and bad pairings between the aspiration. This chart differs from the previous one and may contain personal speculation:

Aspiration High Chemistry Medium Chemistry Low Chemistry Neutral Chemistry Poor Chemistry
Family Family / Knowledge Fortune Grilled Cheese Pleasure / Popularity Romance
Fortune Fortune Family / Knowledge / Popularity Romance Pleasure Grilled Cheese
Knowledge Family / Knowledge Fortune Grilled Cheese Popularity / Romance Pleasure
Romance Pleasure / Romance N/A Fortune / Popularity Grilled Cheese / Knowledge Family
Popularity Popularity Fortune / Pleasure Romance Family / Knowledge Grilled Cheese
Pleasure Pleasure / Romance Grilled Cheese / Popularity N/A Family / Fortune Knowledge
Grilled Cheese Grilled Cheese Pleasure Family / Knowledge Romance Fortune / Popularity

Note that any personal speculation this chart may contain won't necessarily be fixed

  • There was a time where I thought that Family and Popularity Sims would be more compatible, as they both have aspirations that focus on socialising.
  • I was surprised when I found that Knowledge and Pleasure don't go together very well, because Pleasure Sims like to go Downtown and Downtown is where Vampires hang out and Knowledge Sims don't mind vampires. Well I guess that's not enough to overlook the things that make Knowledge and Pleasure Sims so different.
  • Despite Knowledge and Fortune Sims only getting a mild chemistry boost, if at all, I always imagined that they'd get a strong chemistry boost. Both aspirations are ambitious and learning a lot is a big advantage to those who want to earn lots of money. Despite their mild chemistry boost, I've always interpreted Knowledge and Fortune Sims as being compatible as Family and Knowledge Sims because their wants don't usually clash.
  • I always thought that Popularity was the best pairing for Romance - at least until I discovered the Pleasure aspiration.
