Why humans ever came to need goosebumps is uncertain. Some biologists believe that goosebumps evolved as part of the fight-or-flight reaction along with heart rate increases that send the heart racing while blood rushes to the muscles to give them additional oxygen.
A similar phenomenon, bristling, in fur-covered animals may have made them look larger and more frightening and kept them warmer by increasing the amount of air between hairs which traps body heat. But in people there seems to be no practical purpose for goosebumps except, of course, to make our skin crawl!

Well how about when someone tells a story about an encounter and one gets the chills?
Are your chills like goosebumps? It is just a neurological response. Goosebumps happen from being cold or fear. It is an automatic response from the nerves that contract the muscles and raise up the area of the hair follicles.. Everytime I tell someone about my ghost experiences, I get goosebumps... I also experience from others stories the "chills" that are goosebumps and just a whole chilling feeling through my body.
