Thank you for putting me in the right direction "SilentWalkerGStudy". I always thought they were some type of ghosts, but this makes sense. So poltergeists have no visible forms, right? You just know that they are there by the moving objects etc.

The poltergeist phenomenon is a theory though, and no conclusive evidence of it being a psychokinesis from a person has been shown. The fact is, it is centered around someone but I think it may not be impossible that these phenomonon are being amplified by something, such as ghost or an entity who by capting these forces, used them against one's will. That's a theory put forward by Guy Playfair a writter on the subject of parapsychology.

I just googled it and most all articles think so. Here's a link to just one: http://www.crystalin...ltergeists.html
Poltergeist phenomena is a focus of study within parapsychology (a discipline which does not have wide acceptance within the mainstream scientific community). Parapsychologists define poltergeist activity as a type of uncontrolled psychokinesis. Recurrent Spontaneous Psychokinesis (RSPK) is a phrase suggested by parapsychologist William G. Roll to denote poltergeist phenomena.
Poltergeist activity tends to occur around a single person called an agent or a focus (typically a prepubescent female). Almost seventy years of research by the Rhine Research Center (Raleigh-Durham, NC USA) has led to the hypothesis among parapsychologists that the "poltergeist effect" is a form of psychokinesis generated by a living human mind (that of the agent). According to researchers at the Rhine Center, the "poltergeist effect" is the outward manifestation of psychological trauma.
Skeptics believe that the phenomena are hoaxes perpetrated by the agent. Indeed, many poltergeist agents have been caught by investigators in the act of throwing objects. A few of them later confessed to faking. However, parapsychologists investigating poltergeists think that most occurences are real, and the agents cheat only when they are subsequently caught cheating. The longevity and consistency between poltergeist stories (the earliest one details the raining of stones and bed shaking in ancient Egypt) has left the matter open for debate within the parapsychology community.

Evidences, though not wholly conslusive point that way. For instance the activity is always centered around a particular person in a household. He/She is often in the range of 10 to 21 years old but some researchers suggest that this phenomenon can occur until to late in adulthood.
There is some inconsistencies though, for instance why a person, though acting involontarily would throw things and hurt him/herself. It make sens to think that some malvolent entity could feed on this energy (hormonal or psychic, the origin is quite unknown) and make his presence known by wreaking havoc. I do agree that the lack of clear evidences made this hypothesis but a theory. But if we accept the possiblity of ghosts and entities, this is not a ludicrous opinion.
