I think when you have verbs like this: seintarse; which means to feel, it goes like this: me siento (I feel), te siento (you feel), le siento(he/she feels), nos siento (we feel), os siento (you guys feel), and les siento (they feel)

Joseph, those translations are wrong.

me siento (I feel) OK
te sientes (you feel)
se siente (he/she feels) (and you formal feel)
nos sentimos (we feel)
se sienten (they feel) (and you plural feel)

And the infinitive is sentirse, not seintarse.

"Te siento", "le siento", "nos siento", "os siento" and "les siento" are not reflexive, no matter how you look at them. To be reflexive, the subject and the object must be the same. See my previous post for a REFLEXIVE conjugation.

Refer to "Reference" section on this site -- (see above), Lesson 2.5 on this site (see above), and search this forum.

OK: Reflexive Verbs conjugate just like all the verbs and stems that you know -- you may need to add a accent mark if you attach the pronoun to the end.

I subscribe to Gus's disclaimer.

It depends on what you mean by reflexive. Let me show you a verb with reflexive object pronouns:

(yo) me ducho
(yo) te duchas
(él, ella, usted) se ducha
(nosotros/as) nos duchamos
(vosotros/as) os ducháis
(ellos/as, ustedes) se duchan

This is basically the same as a verb with "myself", "yourself", "himself",... The verb alone is not reflexive, but the construction is.
