Michael Scott is known for being a cheery optimist. He has a good work ethic and is always striving to better himself. He has aspirations of becoming a regional manager, and is sure of himself, telling his employees “Don’t forget, you work for me.”

He also has unshakable faith in himself, as seen in “The Client” episode when he tells his employees he can solve the situation with a talk, and they reply, “No. You really can’t.” Michael totally ignores them and goes into the office.
