Um.....nope. Confusion or uncertainty of locality is not the same as being
in the other agent body. You're still you, just a bit disoriented.

You and an exact copy of you are facing each other an equal distance from
the center of a symmetrical room. I have a switch and tell you that when I
throw it you will instantly exchange positions. When I do you would notice
no difference, you could not even determine if I was telling the truth; the
switch might have been connected to nothing, or maybe not, but either way
it makes no difference to you#1 or to you#2. And if it makes no difference
it would be pointless to pretend that there are 2 different yous.
