"Before I do anything I ask myself, 'Would an idiot do that?' And if they would, I do not do that thing. Changed my life."

Dwight Kurt Schrute III

Dwight is unofficially the assistant (to the) regional manager at Dunder Mifflin. Dwight is extremely passionate about paper and is constantly trying to impress Michael. Dwight is also the leading salesman in the Scranton office. While Dwight displays many characteristics which lack social graces, he has a very good understanding of many economic concepts. In several of the clips on this site, he has a better understanding of arbitrage opportunities and gains from trade than most of the other characters on the program.

When Dwight becomes manager of Dunder Mifflin Scranton (for a short time) and introduces his own currency (Schrute Bucks) the results are entertaining and a good example of the potential weakness of fiat money.

Dwight was a former volunteer sheriff's deputy, and has been trained in surveillance. He has also displayed expert levels of knowledge and training in hospitality management, seduction, social dynamics, agriculture, espionage, and economics. Dwight's vast compendium of other talents and skills include, but are not limited to: military strategist & weapons expert, martial arts & other modes of self-defense, he is an avid survivalist and successful entrepreneur. He enjoys Smallville, Battlestar Galactica, the Harry Potterfranchise, Stars, The Crow, The Apprentice, Lost, Survivor, The Amazing Race, HBO's Game of Thrones, and 24. Dwight lives on his family's 60-acre (240,000 m2) beet farm, in a nine-bedroom farmhouse (with one outhouse), with his cousin and best friend Mose, where they grow table beets. Dwight also likes paintball, survivalism, Goju Ryu and weapons. He drives a 1987 Pontiac Trans Am.
