i love this! i'm an office freak
, but you're right...michael creeps me out sometimes, too. i'd write him off as a jerk, but then every once in awhile, he'll show a different side of himself. have you seen any of the episodes that has kids on it? there's a halloween episode where he's just a jerk all day long, then the last scene is him sitting at home all alone until kids ring his doorbell and he's just so sweet to them:icon_hug: . same thing happens in "bring your daughter to work day episode."
as far as diagnosis, i'm gonna go with, "narcissistic personality disorder."
allow me to dork-out for a minute here: my notes classify this as, "pervasive pattern of grandiosity, need for admiration, and lack of empathy, indicated by 5 or more of the following:
-grandiose sense of self-importance (!)
-preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance (wait, dwight?), beauty or ideal love (!)
-believes they're special/unique and can only be understood by other special/high status people
-require excessive admiration (!)
-has sense of entitlement
-is interpersonally exploitive (!)
-lacks empathy (!)
-is envious of others or believes that others are envious of self
-shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes (!)
