    There's something wrong with them
    it is part of a disassociative disorder.they refer to themselves that way to prevent themselves from having to take responsibility for or from owning the emotions associated with what they are saying. (my room mate does this all the time and it drives me nuts!) to give you an understanding...compare the two statements using myself as an example. "I spilled the milk all over the floor." and compare that to "Raven spilled the milk all over the floor." see, on a mental level for those who speak in the 3rd person, they can almost convince themselves they are talking about someone else, it detaches them from the responsibility, where as saying "I did something bad" they have to own the problem and therefor accept responsibility for it.

    Michael enjoys talking this way. Michael has to go now. Michael has to find the precious. They took it from Michael, the nasty hobbitses.

    instead of saying "I went to the store." I would say "She went to the store." or instead of saying "That's mine." I would say "That's hers." Get it? kind of?

    Jeffery sees no issue here. Jeffery thinks it's perfectly fine to refer to one's self in the third person. Jeffery knows that some people won't know who he is unless Jeffery does such a thing.

    Well, Jeffrey is deffinitely doing that for attention then.
