One of the most widely accepted views in the realm of paranormal phenomena is the belief in ghosts. In parapsychology, ghost sightings are classified into two main categories: apparitions, and hauntings. Ghosts have been described as an invisible presence to a translucent , wispy shape or like a vision. It is believed they haunt or reside in locations, objects, or associate with people they were familiar with in life. Apparitions are deemed to be intelligent spirits that are responsive to present time occurrences. Hauntings may be location specific and affect the senses including sightings, electronic voice phenomena, and smells. Ghosts may display special abilities such as electromagnetic interference, telekinesis, teleportation, leave certain scents, make audible sounds, and affect room temperatures through thermokinesis, a feeling of being cold when a ghost enters a room. They can appear as mists, vapors, or intense balls of light, such as orbs. Ghosts may appear temperamental, using their energies to move objects, they may feel trapped, or exist in a state of confusion.
