That’s interesting. I have not experienced that before, whether in Indonesia, Australia or New Zealand - my sense of direction is unaffected.

However, unlike most people, I always get worse jet lag when I go East. For most, it’s the opposite. For example, if I fly via Frankfurt to the US, jet lag is much less than via Tokyo over the Pacific.

One time I took the direct Singapore-NYC flight that goes over the North Pole… had zero jet lag. But then again, it was SQ business class and I slept for a full 12 hours on the flight. That was the best flight ever!
I’m the total opposite, so I guess much like everyone else. My jet lag is the worst when I’m back in the US, sometimes takes up to a week to get back to normal.
