One thought on “Does Michael Scott have autism”

  1. No, he’s not.

    He has Narcistic Personality Disorder probably. Often confused with autism because of some of the same characteristics.

    Look again at the Office and you will notice that he constantly wants to be in the center of attention and he’s bragging about stuff he’s not even good at. He also lacks responsibility. He keeps hurting everyone around him and the doesn’t even care.

    That’s why he is a good salesman. He’s not neccesarely socially akward, he can be very social. But his narcissism affects him.

    No, he’s not autistic at all. A loner with NPD.
