  1. Most of the time, ghost busters find normal circumstances to explain ghost-like phenomena. For example, a badly sealed window might be causing that sudden draft, not a ghost. Ghost busters tend to prefer the title of "paranormal investigators" because their jobs involve checking out strange events that just don't seem to have natural causes. Paranormal investigators tend to first do background research on a site that is considered haunted. When the investigator arrives at the site, he or she usually speaks to everyone who witnessed the phenomena in question and tries to evaluate how genuine the ghost experience was. The investigator then might set up shop with all sorts of gadgets (like cameras and seismographs) to catch the ghost in action. Some investigators are bent on finding evidence of ghosts and others use scientific methods and try to evaluate the evidence objectively.
