I have no idea how this happened, but somehow, iOS 9 picked one of my contacts as the “Me” account. The “Me” flat on a contact card should—obviously—be set to my own contact card, and NOT one of my contacts’ contact card.

How can I fix this? Please help!

I would prefer not to have to delete the contact card for myself, or for my friend. But what the heck did I do that flagged him as “Me”? It even has a “Create Medical ID” on his contact card!

I’ve never experienced this situation before. Any and all help will be appreciated. @Europa

When I edit my own contact card, I don’t see a way to reset it to “This is Me” status.

Update: I have fixed this. No reply is necessary.

For those who may want to know, here's what one should do.
Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts and Calendar > scroll down to Contacts > Tap on "my info" > Tap on your contact name.
