In this type of haunting, you are dealing with an "intelligent" presence that can communicate with you, and interact with you in a seemingly "intelligent" way. An intelligent ghost haunting is best described as a responsive usually human entity with whom you have interactive intelligent communication. This type entity is seemingly the personality of a person who once lived, and who is either "trapped" in our world or in between ours and another realm or has already moved onto the next plane and can now freely travel back and forth between our realm and theirs, and or presumably elsewhere.  Intelligent ghosts are not "evil" or "dangerous" as some people would have you believe. "Intelligent"ghosts are simply human personalities, and if the spirit was a kind and caring person in life, the spirit will most likely be the same way in death. Likewise, angry and mean people will usually keep those same negative character traits as spirits. An intelligent haunting/ghost will likely seek to get the attention of living people. To get attention, the ghost may try turning things on and off, hiding objects, moving things, make noises, and other type of annoying or nuisance behavior.  

The ghost/spirit may be looking for assistance to pass over or for assistance to accomplish a certain task, or may just be letting you know they are around with no other intent or need. Occasionally the human entity is stuck in a death state and does not know they are dead and is simply continuing with life as unusual. The ghost has somehow been trapped between two planes of existence and is unable to move on. However, more times than not though, the entities we comes across are able to move about freely, coming and going as they choose.

The key factor in an intelligent haunting is that the ghost can interact with you (communication—it responds and notices human beings).  If the ghost does not notice you or other human beings, and cannot interact or communicate with you, it's not an intelligent haunting.
