Reflexive pronouns and Intensive pronouns have the same form:

myself, yourself, himself, herself, themselves, ourselves

but they differ in function.

The function of the intensive pronoun is to emphasize or intensify a noun or pronoun. It means, on one's own, by oneself:

I myself once faced a similar difficulty.
She baked that pie herself. (i.e., All by herself!)
He himself must make that choice.
The children themselves decided that a trip to Disneyland would be an unnecessary extravagance.
