‘Myself’ Is Not a Polite Version of ‘Me’…

it’s just ignorantly wrong.

Myself is a reflexive pronoun that must appear with the use of me; it cannot be substituted for me.

If you don’t want to talk about yourself because you feel it appears arrogant, feel free never to talk about yourself.  However, if you’re just trying to paper over the ego thrill of talking about yourself, myself ain’t the solution.  It just shows you’re stupid.
