Don't Fall For It Jimmy!
Jimmy's a con man on Better Call Saul but at this stage of the show, he has some conscience, a conscience that tells him to "help" his brother, who seems to be a high functioning narcissist or sociopath perfecting the art of "screwing others" over.
It's sad to watch Jimmy's character always bending over backwards to help Chuck, even refusing to get Chuck committed for his severe mental problems which includes avoiding all electricity and covering himself and his house in tin foil to keep out the electrical and radio waves as Chuck does everything to undermind him and his girlfriend Kim Wexler. In this scene, Chuck gets Jimmy to confess to fraud, pretending to be sicker, crazier and like he has "given up".
Sadly for wicked people like this, the fact of conscience in another can be the "weak" point they exploit. Chuck probably even faked having catonia for 20 hours! That's pretty hard core. Watching this show can be interesting lessons on how human evil operates. Breaking Bad definitely was a show showing a man descending into full blown sociopathy.
