Confused Spirits [1] are ghosts that are in denial about their current state of being.

History

When people experienced typically experience a death that is simultaneously unexpected and instantaneous, whether it was by accident, natural causes, or murder, their mind and souls never properly registered the transition. [2] They manifested as Confused Spirits. These entities still believed they were alive and often remembered their identity. However, they remained in a state of denial or otherwise oblivious about being a ghost. Most Confused Spirits were trapped in a repetitive pattern related to settling some form of unfinished business. A common example of the Confused Spirits are hitchhiker ghosts. Some have even engaged in small talk when given a ride. It was discovered that the Confused Spirits' behavior became unpredictable when they were told they were a ghost. Some peacefully dispersed. Some grew violent.

Classification

The Confused Spirits are Class 4 entities and typically corporeal. [3] The atomic cohesion is stable enough for this type of ghost to mimic the physical substance of a living human being and appear fully corporeal. [4]

Paragraph reads: "The deaths of those who come back as confused spirits were typically both unexpected and instantaneous. Whether these deaths were caused by accident, natural causes, or murder makes little difference; the event is sudden enough that the mind (and, by extension, the soul) can't properly register the transition."

Paragraph reads: "It's most likely that the Jogger wasn't aware that it had actually passed on, which isn't uncommon in the case of an instantaneous death---a sudden heart attack could have killed the Jogger before he had the chance to register his own passing (for more on this type of entity, see the entry on confused spirits on page 34)."
