lateralization in me?

I wouldn't worry about it.
I am a lefty too and while growing up, I was wrongly instructed as to which
hand was right or left. I too have trouble telling left from right.
As to the lateral stimulation goosebumping, I get goosebumps on one half of
my body depending on the side of the body stimulated. Right ear, right
So I don't think you are that strange. Perhaps it is a lefty trait, but I
wouldn't worry about it. Lefty.
