Scott Adams is the creator of the comic strip Dilbert, which has been syndicated in more than 2,000 newspapers across 57 countries and in 19 different languages.

He has also written multiple pretty funny books focused on self-growth and business principles.


  • His post-college jobs included bank teller, computer programmer, and commercial lender.
  • He began drawing cartoons as a hobby in 1979.
  • Scott’s bestselling Dilbert books include The Dilbert Principle and How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big.
  • In the early 2020s, his public persona became increasingly ‘controversial’, prompting several major newspapers to end Dilbert.
  • Scott is a trained hypnotist and accurately predicted Donald Trump’s 2016 election win.

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
