We can use reflexive pronouns:
– after like, as well as, as(for), etc instead of object pronouns
eg. What makes people like yourself want to be an actor?
– to emphasise a noun, pronoun or noun phrase
eg. I like the work, but the job itself is very tiring.
– to make it clear that an object refers to the same person/thing as the subject of the verb.
eg. He read the letter to himself.
– with verbs such as exert, pride, occupy; and dress, shave, wash if we want to emphasise that someone does the action themselves.
We do not usually use reflexive pronouns with these verbs: concentrate, feel, meet
eg. I feel very relieved. NOT I feel myself very relieved.
