(Inspired by House of Lies intro)

What am I?
You already know what I am!
I'm not a executive consultant, and I'm not Marty Kaan.
All I have to do is make you think you don't know.
I'll confuse you with my words and make you think you don't know!
But I know you, you're better than this. So catch up!

I hope this one proves to be a little more difficult than my previous riddle, but I think someone will get it.

  • $\begingroup$ No, I just worded it similar to how the main character speaks during the intro of the show :) $\endgroup$ – Mark N Apr 15 '15 at 13:42

What am I?

A riddle.

You already know what I am!

Because you told me in the title.

I'm not a executive consultant, and I'm not Marty Kaan.

Riddles are not people.

All I have to do is make you think you don't know.

Riddles are not straightforward, so you will doubt yourself.

I'll confuse you with my words and make you think you don't know!

Riddles often have confusing language to obfuscate the answer.

But I know you, you're better than this. So catch up!

Thanks for believing in me!

You're answering a question right now. A question makes you feel like you don't know the answer. Questions often have complex words or weird sentences. But if you're good, you can come up with a good answer to it!

I think you are:

doubt.

I cannot place it on a particular sentence but the overall riddle seems to be making me

doubt

about the thing i already know. but the following stence:

All I have to do is make you think you don't know.

making someone think they don't know is making them doubt

same goes for the next line:

I'll confuse you with my words and make you think you don't know!

To further back this up the other sentences are put there as a diversion or distraction, come to think of it those (diversion/distraction) could be the answer as well xD
