I don't understand why stesso is in this sentence. Can someone explain.

me stesso means myself

I thought 'stesso' meant "the same" as in "lo stesso"

It does, but it ALSO is used to form "myself", "herself", "themselves", etc.

Haha i thought si stesso meant "myself"!

Thank you. I thought myself was "mi"

"mi vedo" anche vuol dire "vedo me stesso"? se no, perché? forse che "me stesso" sia più enfatico o riflessivo?

me stesso: myself; te stesso: yourself; se stessa: herself; se stesso: himself/itself; noi stessi: ourselves; voi stessi: yourselves; loro stessi: themselves.

I've studied this sentence and the best I can come up with it that "me" is a disjunctive pronoun. Here is used after the verb for stress. I see myself (not him). Is that right?

I think the point is 'me stesso' together means myself.

Thanks, but why is myself me stesso and not mi stesso?
