An intensive pronoun is a pronoun that emphasizes its antecedent.
Example: My sister fried her eggs herself.
My sister = antecedent
herself = intensive pronoun
Intensive pronouns always end with “self” or “selves.” Some intensive pronouns are
MYSELF, HIMSELF, HERSELF, YOURSELF, ITSELF,
THEMSELVES, OURSELVES, and YOURSELVES.
I saw the treasure myself.
Dad will mow the lawn himself.
You need to do the work yourself.
The outfit itself is awesome, even without the tassels.
The kids cleaned their room themselves.
We can sing the song ourselves.
You yourselves can see the point.
