Kim Kardashian is the queen of selfies and looking fabulous. To celebrate her new book about how to take your best selfie, let’s examine the word self and reflexive pronouns:

Self is used in reflexive pronouns. Reflexive means reflecting back on itself like a mirror…or selfie photos!


Self reflexive pronouns:

Myself, yourself, himself, herself, themselves or itself. Use these when the object of the sentence is the same as the subject.

Here’s a list:

Myself, yourself, himself, herself, itself are singular – they refer to one person or thing.

Ourselves, yourselves and themselves are plural – they refer to more than one person.


He was dancing by himself.

Some people do foolish things to make themselves famous.

Jenny and Tom, help yourselves to some cake.

Practice Time! Fill in the correct reflexive pronoun for each space. Good luck!
