Automatically Granted: Creators When you create a user or database, the system automatically grants you privileges on the created database or user.
Automatically Granted: Created User or Database When you create a user or database, it automatically gets certain privileges on itself.
Explicitly Granted: Creators When you create a user, you do not automatically receive certain privileges on the user.
Explicitly Granted: Created User or Database Although the system automatically grants many database privileges, some privileges are only available to users if you explicitly grant them. You must have the WITH GRANT OPTION privilege on these privileges before you can grant them.

When you create a user, it does not automatically get certain privileges on itself.
