Thanks! More good ones to add…
You could ask about locations… inside, outside, limestone buildings, water, wells, ect… And do they know of any legends/history of the area that might explain the incident-old graveyard, ect… Were they renovating the building? Any other recent work done--major plumbing, electric, digging, landscaping, anything that changed the environment.
Thanks, these are also great additions to the survey…

any occupants drink alcohol heavily
any occupants interested in the occult
any occupants seeing a psychiatrist
have any religious clergy been consulted
has there been any media involvement
have there been any other witnesses besides the occupants

have there been any voices: (whispering, yelling, crying, speaking)
has there been any movement of objects
have there been any levitation

when was the first occurrence of the phenomena
what were the witnesses' reaction during the phenomena

how often does the phenomena occur

Actually that's all the questions they list.
Holy crap! /laugh.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />
I have a lot of those already, that's a good list – I may have to consider some o' them! lol
I have a couple of questions like that, Dbunker, I like those types of questions. Personally, I think a lot of what is 'witnessed' falls into this type of category… Thanks though! It's a great topic for discussion, too.
Another question pertaining to the person who saw the "ghost":
At the time they saw the "ghost", were they suffering from a headache/migraine, flu, etc?
I tend to be more "sensitive" to paranormal energy when I'm under the weather, and I was involved once with a study where the intent was to try to correlate sensitives who suffer from migraines more often than the normal person, without any other logical explanation, to the ability to see, hear and sense ghosts. It was quite interesting and made a lot of sense, actually.
Also, how often have they seen ghosts, or do they see them often? Have they seen them since they were a child? Have they seen the same ghost and if so, approximately how many times, at what locations and for how many days/weeks/months/years?
I'm made of wax.
Thanks for the additional survey questions, interesting about the sickness thing.
Have you always believed in ghosts/paranormal?
Do you watch any paranormal shows?
Have you seen ghosts/witnessed paranormal activity previously here or in other locations?
Other possible factors:
time of day,
time of the month with regards to lunar cycles,
time of year,
what was the weather like,
humid or dry,
seismic activity in the area,
construction in the area,
and so on.
Thanks, Zen! I can't believe I forgot about remodeling/construction… /biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='B)' />
LoL I know, right? /laugh.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='B)' />
I think with all of the questions I've been compiling, trying to keep track of them all… I have forgotten a few of the "no-duh" questions to put on there. yikes!
