An Intelligent Spirit or Ghost will Interact.
These types of ghosts and haunting are very focused on the now and human interaction. They know when we are in there area and can even let us know. These types of haunting are the most noticeable when visiting a haunted house and most confronting.
When encountering an intelligent haunted scenario, it is best to be strong minded and focused. Remember ghosts were once us and a lot of the time a spirit may just need a bit of help moving on.. In this case, a common remedy for spirits in this scenario is telling them it is time to go to the light. The reason for the light answer working is not fully known as fact, however the theory is that a light exists in the spirit world where if the spirit journeys down it, it will move on back to the energy source or to a new life..
An example of an intelligent haunting is by interaction. One example is if you hear footsteps in your house ( personal experience here ) and you ask who is there the footsteps either stop or move closer to your room. Another example is hearing a faint voice on asking. Or another is even hearing physical objects move in your house, eg door moving, light switching on and off as the ghost moves around the house..
These types of spirits are the most confrontational for the witness and if you experience it, it does not matter if you are a skeptic or not. In this situation, anyone will believe..
The counterpart ( similar to opposite ) to this type of situation is a residual haunting.
