The messaging is a bit odd, but the Log in as User allows site admins to temporarily log in as a different user to troubleshoot account issues. You are prevented from doing this with your own account to make sure you cannot accidentally lock yourself out or deactivate your own account.

If you are able to see your users in the admin panel, you are, as you say, already logged in as yourself.

Hi @Robert Edyvean 

As a site admin, you cannot log in as yourself it doesn't make sense to do so. so the "log in as user" should be greyed out and not accessible.
