In many ghost stories, you either have ghosts that can actively respond to their surroundings much like a living person would, or ghosts that regularly show up and seem entirely oblivious of anyone or anything else while they repeat a specific action (such as say, the last few moments before their demise).

Long story short, do you think these two both qualify as "ghosts" or are they fundamentally different entities? I remember reading something in some old 2000s forum which effectively speculates those ghosts who only repeat one action aren't 'proper' ghosts in that their soul already passed on and what we see is just some sort of psychic echo that was imprinted on the locale they haunt due to their usually traumatic death.
Meanwhile, those ghosts who could still react to various stimuli were 'still there' as proper ghosts. Curiously, old people suffering from dementia and Alzheimers supposedly are especially prone to turning into ones because their minds are too eroded to note they have died; leading to angry reactions when perfect strangers invade "their" home.

In the folklore of Central Europe, after death the soul goes to Heavem or Hell. If they go to Hell, their body and/or spirit/mind(hence why the German word for spirit and mind is the same: Geist) might turn into an undead as a warning to the living not to sin. While these undead walk the earth, regardless if they are corporeal or uncorporeal, they still can feel their souls burning and suffering in Hell which is the reason most undead wail, screech and howl and show erratic behavior.
