typing Which is correct?

I designed the new space to please ____ as much as I designed it to please the client.
a. me
b. myself

Answer: b

Myself is a reflexive pronoun. Although it’s often used incorrectly in business writing (and even more often in business speech), in this context, it’s the correct form.
