Intro to Demonology 102

Can you tell if this case is a typical human spirit or is it something more dangerous to you and the residents? Can you do this without alarming them with your questions? This is part of the training I received years ago and have expanded on over the past 35 years.
Interviewing people who are experiencing ghost activity in their home is not as simple as you may think. You need to find out what is occurring, discern any natural causes, know what flags to look out for and much more plus do this in a manner that makes people feel comfortable telling complete strangers intimate details of their lives. It all starts with a questionnaire and then there is the face to face interview.
Why did the haunting in a home suddenly start? Did it really start suddenly or has it been going on for a long time?
How scared, anxious or just curious are the residents? Figure that our regardless of how they answer questions in regards to that.
How many reasons why do we need to know if they are on medication, take drugs or drink heavily? A lot more than just how it may affect their perception.
Many of the simple questions you ask on the questionnaire can give you many more answers than the obvious ones. The witnesses don’t realize that, but that is the whole point. You are doing the detective work of paranormal research.
