    reflexive pronouns

    I would like to know the rules that govern the position of reflexive pronouns.
    " I myself talked to the CEO" is correct or " I talked to the CEO myself"? and
    "As the office boy was absent , I had to do the copying myself" is correct or " As the office boy was absent , I myself had to do the copying"

    Re: reflexive pronouns

    The end position is more common, but after the pronoun is also used; it can give extra emphasis.
