Nitwits don't have any profession, they don't choose it. Accordingly, they do not have levels of development, they cannot trade in the same way. The only function of the Nitwits is reproduction.

Questions about nitwit

Here you will find detailed answers to frequently asked questions about nitwit.

The Nitwits appeared in the game thanks to a bug. Sometimes the players, with the help of a certain set of commands, would have a villager who had no profession and could not get a profession. When the developers found out about this, they decided not to remove this bug, but to introduce a loafer villager into the game. Thus, this subtype of villager officially appeared in Minecraft 1.11.

The Nitwits can be born in a village, or they can be summoned with a command. They can also be obtained by curing a Nitwit zombie (which spawned naturally, not by infecting a normal Nitwit).

The Nitwits can breed under the right conditions. In the game, it is possible to get offspring both from two Nitwits, and from villager and Nitwit. As in real life, the game has peculiar laws of genetics: they are more likely to have a The Nitwit child, less likely to be an ordinary villager child.

Even though Nitwits are not a problem for the player, some players would like to reduce their number in the village by populating it with "useful" villagers. But Nitwits although useless, are still considered villagers, so directly killing a Nitwit will lead to negative consequences: the loyalty of villagers with professions will be lost, prices will rise, and the village golem will perceive the player as an enemy.

One way to get around this problem is indirect killing. For example, place a block of lava in their path or set something on fire and just let them burn. Or lure them into a hole and cover them with gravel or sand.

The player should not kill the nitwits. Any negative impact on a villager in Minecraft will cause a decrease in the reputation and hostility of golems. Therefore, if they are not needed, they can be taken away from the village and "helped" to fall into a pre-prepared pit or lava.
