Neither actually harmed you...the ghost was a stranger, the alien look like those bug-eyed stereotypes you see on the X-files or the Roswell crash 'photos.'

Say you saw both in some remote field in the country...

Which would seem scarier? I'd actually say the ghost, since it's supernatural, while the alien is probably at least flesh and blood.

The alien would be much scarier to me.

Spirits, no biggie since I live on a haunted farm.

An ETE, yeah buddy, that would scare the daylights outta me.

They prefer to be referred to as "Spirits" not ghosts and either would be fine with me. I see Spirits all the time and as long as the alien was not all slimy and pus filled gross I would be okay with it.

How do you KNOW? I think it is all dimensional: time slippage, that sort of thing. And what if they see us and go around saying to each other "hey those weird things we see every now and then, they are DEMONS!!!"

Ghost, spirits and demons, oh my!
Ghosts and spirits are two different things in my book....and how do you know what they prefer being called? LOL...
And demons....oh boy....I wonder what a friendly ET would do if you accused him of being a demon.

The poll does not have a 'niether' option. Already encountered ghosts...
I would not be scared to see an alien, been wanting to most of my life. I always said that when they come and make themselves public, I'm going to be the nut on the top of the hill with a sign saying 'take me with you'.
Now of course, I don't know if these aliens are kind or not....it would be more exciting for me than scary. There is that element of caution mixed with the excitement and some anxiety over witnessing such an event. I'm sure I'd be vibrating, like the shakes. That happens to me when I'm in uncertain/nervous situations. Just as long as my legs don't turn to jello if I need to run. Nervous, cautious, curious....sure, scared, no....but who's to say. Could be it comes out looking like the mother in the movie alien....that would be not fun....
