Demon possession: real or just a psychological issue?

Many films were made about demon possession and some are based on true to life stories like the classic exorcist. Many believes that demons can actually take hold of a person's body but a many are skeptical. What do you think? Can someone prevent this from happening?

I believe in ghost and demons. Never was a firm believer in any of that until some friends and I were playing around with a ouji board and I had a very bad, frightening experience. I do not think that there is someone that could prevent a possession. If possession is something that you are worried about I would defiantely limit practices of any sort that could open doorways for them to come through.

I am not sure if I believe in possession or not. I do believe in ghosts, but as a general rule I don't think they can hurt you. I have had experiences with ghosts, but never demons. A lot of people do believe in possessions so I would think that the beliefs would have stemed from somewhere. It's a good question, even if they aren't real, they are interesting to read about and see movies about.
