Would You Run Or Stay

Honestly, I would try to stay as long as I could but if it went past my eeriness level (don't know what that is at the moment) I'd probably head out.

Real paranormal investigation requires hours of patience, waiting for something to happen and when it does, it needs to be observed and documented offering a level of respect you would grant your own family. Real paranormal investigation is tangible to fishing. Mostly, it is trying to catch a single fish in a huge body of water with the wrong bait.
Occasionally we would open membership and look for potential members to join our paranormal team. Much like a job interview, we used a foundation of questions to get a feel if a potential member would be a good fit. One of the questions was “Do you feel paranormal television accurately reflects real paranormal investigation? The wrong answer to this question would severely limit the opportunity to join.
I highly recommend to any individual who is interested in serious investigation to recognize that these shows offer VERY limited value and should not be used as a foundation of mentor-ship. If you want to learn the wrong way to investigate, watch a paranormal show.
Lastly the frequency of phenomena on these shows is nothing less than laughable. Look up Barry Taff, a respected parapsychologist. During his career of 4000 investigations, he has documented less than 6 elevated occurrences of activity. How long would this keep a television audience interested if it takes years for one event to manifest? Keep in mind how I started this dissertation. The key word is scripted.

On one of our best investigations, my wife was in a room alone being monitored by a camera. The reported activity included a reported little girl, and we figured she may be more likely to show up with a mother type figure. We saw a spark and my wife began talking to someone off camera. Said the partial apparition of a little girl hovered in the open closet for a few minutes. The residents had said the girl appeared to one of them saying this was her room, and she showed herself holding their dead baby (it wasn't really dead). After the apparition went away, I came into the room. I didn't get anything, tried EVP and more filming, so I laid down on the floor with my head in the closet and tried talking to her. My head felt funny and tingly and I got a headache, but that's all.
Point being you should go AFTER activity, not run from it

If you read Vlawde's or my post, it's evident we have experience in the field. Good luck on your journey.
Well said Vlawde.
Bartz, one of the most fascinating cases from Taff was the "Doris Bither" investigation. If you have 15 minutes to waste you can hear Dr. Barry Taff talk at length with Art Bell about it. Definitely a good listen. RIP Art.

I would climb over you to get out of the way if a mouse happened to run my way.

I grew up in a haunted house and having many experiences, so it would take quite a bit to make me run. You can get not so much blase but somewhat used to feeling, hearing and seeing things.

I can appreciate that. I had a couple of big paranormal scares and after that everything was numbed in comparison. I'm not suggesting that I don't understand "the flight" reaction only that I'd need some crazy activity taking place before I would leave. After all, that's why I'm there
