Something occured to me last night - it's something that I've noticed previously but never been bothered to post about ..

Boys want action, Girls want stories

What I mean by that is that - generally speaking - blokes want and prefer chairs being thrown about, big environmental changes, boom boom and bang bangs .. ie, physical activity .. when on an investigation

While women tend to take a great satisfaction in the info that mediums come up with and the stories behind the names and info that gets picked up on.

Generally speaking, as I say.

Why is this? Or, is it only me who's ever noticed this?

Well as my rating is now showing 'Ghost of Elvis' I have to say that I like "a little less conversation a little more action please!"

Probably for the same reason that boys like going to noisy football and girls might go for a manicure or massage. Boys like death metal girls like Dido..

Is it to do with emotions? So the girls are hearing the words from mediums and that arouses their emotions maybe, whereas the boys are like give me some action and noise, something physical!

Boys want sex, girls prefer chocolate.. :shock:

But why? I don't know...! :?

Woooooahhhhhhh right there gentlemen!!!!!

I have to say there is a lack of female replies on this topic!!!

I did the Woodchester Mansion investigation saturday night which was full of paranormal goings on, from noises, bangs and even rocks being thrown. But not once did I feel the need to close my eyes and hold the hand of my neighbour tightly... I was in a group of 6 and I can honestly say the squealing part came from the 3 guys in the group. When things quietened down I decided to try and get things happening again so attempted to goad any spirit to come and reveal themselves or even touch one of us... to the guys dismay. They huddled in the corner. Oh yeah i laughed at them! :lol:

However, i do agree with women enjoying the history and stories behind these places... but to say blokes rather the action... can't say i am convinced all of you blokes prefer that!!!!

Prove me otherwise i say as i will undoubtly be the first into any room where a bang or knock or even a rattle of chains have been heard!!! Haha!
(Probably my background in the Royal Navy has toughened me up a bit! Haha! )

Be safe

Emma xxx :)

Welcome to our little corner of madness Emma.

So would you be in front of Jay and I in jumping into a portal to hell or behind us?

Hi Emma, glad you took the advice and joined the forum.

It's good to hear that your not scared of a bit of 'paranormal action', in fact it must be said that our two NGI ladies aren't afraid either…. except when they get attacked by wardrobes that is.

Well looking out of my office window it is surprisingly sunny at the moment. Look forward to reading your posts tomorrow, but I'm off home now for some liquid refreshment.

I'm sure some of the others will be along so say hi at some point.

I'm killing time here for now.

Fairly warm here today, my car said 16.5C So I stayed indoors pretending to work from home.
Gave the Xbox some stick.

And now I am sat here looking for cheesy rock songs to play on youtube.......productive day.

Well it is really nice to speak to you both.

Plymouth is pretty miserable today and not that warm... But i have been lucky enough to do as little as possible today in work so yeah you could say my day has been equally as productive! Haha!

Any investigations coming up?

The question wasn't really about girls being "screamers" - hell, I can squeal like the best of them at times - but I have found when there has been a bit of activity at times and then a medium goes to say what he or she is picking up on - the group kinda splits into two .. one group wants to encourage more activity, the other group wants to hear what the medium has to say .. and, that latter group, tends to be made up of the gals in the whole group ..

It's just a general thing that I noticed specifically at the investigation which inspired the original post ..

As for Anth publically volunteering me to go charging headlong into portals from hell .. yeah, I'll admit to having that little kink .. My view on that is simple : That may be the one and only time I'm in the position to "get answers" - and I wouldn't want to miss it. Scary, maybe, but I think it would have to be done. A trail of choccy biscuit crumbs to follow would make it easier tho if you chose to go first .. :)

Well we've been busy with a private investigations of late so we've got to respect the clients confidentiality.

We have been invited to investigate 'The Black Gate' in Newcastle by another group who are running a public event there this coming friday which is very good of them. It should be a nice chilled one.

looking forward for this Friday ;)

I would love, I mean really LOVE to hear one of the lads screaming in fear ;) but dont think it will happen with this lot i'm afraid.. me personally will do lone vigils anywhere (or just about anywhere) there is one I past on and that was in Darlo, upstairs, the vibration I got from that upstairs freaked me out so much I had to leave the group and stand outside the door ;) but believe me it doesn't happen all the time. That is one to spirit usually I want them to come as close as possible.
