Do you think a ghost would be as frightened by a living person as we might be of a ghost?

Just curious as to anyone's thoughts on this. Just for fun.

I think that a ghost might be frightened. I can usually tell something is a ghost because it doesn't know where to go and is confused.

In the movie "The Others" the character was a ghost that was terribly frightened of the other occupants of the house that turned out to be living.

I saw what I think was a little ghost in my room in San Francisco. It was kind of a little small man and it was fat. It was kind of hiding behind the bed and looking at me. It seemed to be afraid that I might be able to see it. It appeared for just a little bit. It is hard to tell. So it was ghost like and see through. It did seem a little frightened. I am not for sure that it was really human because it was strange but it may have been.

But I do think that whatever it is that moved my cup and then moved it again if that was a ghost was not afraid of me at all. I didn't see anything I just saw the cup move. It scared me more to just see it move.

I had just answered a similar question like this before and my answered was no. BUT I'm changing my question now to YES, ghost would be as frightened to have an encounter with living person.

Every Saturday, I enjoy watching "Ghostly Encounters" "Paranormal State" and "Celebrity Ghost Stories." And last Saturday, I had watched an episode of "Celebrity Ghost Stories" that had me realized ghost are also scared of us.

The episode was about a hotel where the movie crew experiences "energies" and paranormal stuffs on the upper floor. One actor and the make up artist decided to get up there on the upper floor and do some investigation and they got into this old presidential suite room. They suddenly washed up with cold air, the eerie atmosphere. THEN, a ghost of a young lady appeared as he said, as frightened as he was. The ghost of the young lady wasn't aware off that she was already dead. She got into an accident and from their decided to come back to the hotel room since nobody seems to recognize her and had stayed there for a long years. She didn't know that people won't talk or recognize her is because she was dead already.

I wouldn't think a ghost would be particularly surprised seeing a living person unless they had been alone for a very long time. When a person sees a ghost it is frightening because we do not see them every day unless you're one of the Ghostbusters or Haley Joel Osment. A ghost is an otherworldly entity and seeing one unexpectedly shakes the foundations of our beliefs in the finality of death, at least on the earthly plane.

A ghost is just the remnants of a person who has seen others in their lifetime many times so it would be doubtful that a ghost would be scared seeing the postman approaching the front door. They might be more frightened about seeing other ghosts just like anyone else I would imagine, but over time they would become accustomed to seeing others on their side that we never see.

Sure,our ghost left because the movie guys who were filming in our place kept moving everything around and this scared her(our ghost was a female). a psychic acquaintance came to see us and told us this information. She told us our ghost whose name was Marie,was staying at our place because she loved us but all the moving of furniture by the film crew was disturbing her

Yes, if ghosts can see us, I'm sure we frustrate and frighten them. Even though this question us just for fun, you and I are not the only one to think about it. Rent the movie "The Others" starring Nicole Kidman about a haunted house. You'll love it!

No. Ghosts hold all the cards. They know they are frightening and they know all about living people -they used to be one. Ghosts always need to be coaxed to leave. When ghosts are thought to be around, people leave willingly. lol, good question.
