This a continuation of an interview with Greg Myers of Paranormal Task Force Inc.
Bud: Do you advocate the use of psychics during an investigation or do you prefer a hard line technology only type of investigation?
Greg: In our organization, we don’t call them psychics; we call them “sensitive investigators”. When attempting to bring closure to a case for a client, we will utilize any resource needed. Sensitive investigators are one of these resources we sometimes make use of. We do not rely solely upon their interpretation of the situation, but make use of them just like a piece of equipment from our tool box. There have been many times that a sensitive investigator’s intuitions have guided our researchers in locating and substantiating vital information. Other times, their gift has been used during an investigation to place equipment or for the guidance of investigative interaction which has yielded the capture of that piece of evidence needed to validate the purported activity.
So in summary, we utilize a balanced blend of both hard line scientific technology and metaphysical techniques during investigations. Much of the blend depends upon the purported activity; beliefs and needs of the client; and the objectives of the case or investigation at hand.
Bud: How would you describe your style of investigation?
Greg: I would describe my personal style of investigation as scientific and versatile. Although scientific, I also adapt any interaction and use of equipment to the needs of the investigation, i.e. reported haunting content, past experiences of others, research of the case, etc.
Bud: Do you prefer to investigate in a large group or with a small tight knit group?
Greg: I personally prefer to investigate with a professional small tight knit group of people. However, the requirements of a specific situation will supersede my personal preference.
Bud: The group that you currently investigate with, how would you describe the group dynamic?
Greg: Paranormal Task Force’s dynamics consist of a group of diverse and experienced paranormal professionals who utilize a unique combination of humanistic values and scientific techniques which result in a well formulated approach to paranormal research.
Bud: What books on ghost hunting and the paranormal would you recommend to someone wanting to further their knowledge on the subject?
Greg: There are too many great books out there written by experienced individuals within the paranormal field to single out just one or two. I personally read and learn from whatever I get my hands on.
