For clinical psychologist James Houran (2004), those who are convinced that they are in a haunted house are most likely to feel all that we attribute to the presence of a ghost.

The best test of the self-hypothesis theory is to put someone susceptible to the idea of ghosts in a house after we say that it is haunted.
