How to tell if the pronoun is reflexive or intensive!!!
The way to tell if the pronoun is intensive is to put it in a sentence.
Example: The man himself baked 1000 cakes
Then take it out of the sentence
The man baked 1000 cakes
If the sentence still makes sense then it is an intensive pronoun, and if the sentence no longer makes sense then it is a reflexive pronoun.
Get it?
Intensive or Reflexive??
The woman herself moves 333 boxes in a week.
Gabe himself ate all the fried chicken.

Dana saw herself reflected in the water.
The boy wanted to fight for himself.
The kind old lady gave herself a pat on the back.
***Don't forget to remove the pronoun!!!
