it depends how many consoles you are logged into, or how many x terminal windows you have open, each one of those will report in the 'who' output

Also if you are in Xwindows that uses several users instead of typing in who try typing in w This will tell you who is logged in and what they are doing. The only time it will only show one user logged in I believe is when you are at command prompt only and just logged into one session, someone correct me if I am wrong.
