Your sims will mostly play the same if f you also force all your families to have the same personality and aspirations. I create my sims based on some story idea, and then marry any townie who they are interested in, this helps to encourage diversity.
Currently I'm playing 3 families and having a whole pile of fun. Me farming family are land rich and money poor and now live in a tent and bathe outdoors. I'm not surprised that no matter how hard they try, they aint making any babies, which has led the wife (family sim) to constantly be in red aspiration and worry and cry all the time. No children for them, I'm wondering if me guy is infertile for some reason, it's not looking good. Me middle class family have the good life. One lovely, happy active child, who is well loved, has her own bedroom and is affectionate with everyone. Bit of a worry for her mum though, cause these strange old men keep constantly trying to talk with her. I'm going to have to keep a close eye on that, cause it seems a little creepy to me. Pity that her dad is a romance sim, and has already cheated on her mother twice and has more love interests lined up. Also a pity that the parents work different shifts and all this happens when she gets home from school.
And lastly, the final family of a couple of twin toddlers, a recently pregnant mother, a father who won't stop crying and a cat who is so lonely that it won't go in the house anymore, and keeps attacking anyone who tries to play with her. She used to be such a nice cat, before the twins, and the new baby... Sigh... I'm trying hard to stop her from running away. But there is no time for that, the kids spend their time chasing mum and dad, but mum is always in the toilet or asleep, and dad won't stop crying long enough to play with them. They spend most of their time eating dog food, or sleeping in the pet house, because everyone is too tired, hungry, lonely or sad to give them time and hug them...And all of this with the best nanny ever. You can't walk in the house cause it's littered with diapers, bottles and tons of toys that they are not interested in.
Nope, they just want to sit and cry at the end of their parents bed, so no way of a little romancing to try to get dad's and mum's mood up. When the new baby was born, heck, no one apart from the nanny gave a damn for her, and cause she's in her parents room, she's always getting told off and lectured for some reason or other. But yes the kids have vitality. They are interested in nature just like their dad. The boy is more shy and quiet, and even as toddlers you can see his sister is more forward and demanding. I can't wait... I really can't wait.... and the parents also can't wait until they all become children, not only to help their parents get their sanity back, but to see just how they grow and develop.
No more I think... after this, mum and dad are selling the damn double bed and getting themselves some singles.
