So I heard from a friend that there is this condition where a person writes long paragraphs of text to explain himself and by doing so, trying to gain credibility from people by doing so. Does anyone know what condition is this and what name it goes by? he claims it to be called "Shakespeare syndrome" but I searched it up and it is a whole different mental condition.

Also someone told me it could be schizophrenia. So I'm posting here.

Sounds more like a behavioral habit than an actual “syndrome” or part of a particular disorder

It could be psychosis if that person writes delusional ideas. At the very beginning of my son’s acute episode he started writing a few “letters” with a lot of claims on how everything is clear to him, what a genius he is, etc.
Beside this, I read a few stories about people suddenly writing huge amounts of texts about the “truth” of the universe, etc.

Could be, except he doesn't write delusional ideas, he basically writes personal experiences and stuff to sound always right.

I used to feel like I’d suddenly reached a revelation and write it down when I was feeling a little manic. It’s been leveled out with my antidepressant.

but I didn’t show people what I’d written and didn’t try to get people to agree with me. It was my own personal stuff.

I guess the question is does he really think he’s always right or is he actually super insecure and he does this to try to act like he isn’t?

@Tycoon1 it's actually called Penultimate paragraph syndrome...it's classed as rambling on regarding expressing things.
