    Re: me, myself or I

    It depends on the context (again)

    Are you talking of John and you as subject, or as object?

    "It was good for john and me"

    Not a teacher, by the way.

    I = subject of a sentence (John and I are tall.)
    Me = object of a sentence (John told me he was tall.)

    Subjects: John and I went to the cinema
    Objects: The film was great for John and me

    "myself" is used to emphasize I as subject: I myself did not like the film, or as a reflexive pronoun: I saw myself as hero of the film, and on occasions as a replacement of I or me. This is usually regarded as not quite correct, but is found colloquially.
