Your definition of a dybbuk is wrong. You have mixed the folklore’s of two different entities. The dybbuk is a form of possession that is done by a malicious or malevolent spirit. An ibbur is the opposite version of a dybbuk, it is always a good or positive form of possession. You have have combined the two and gotten them wrong. Please feel free to check out a credible source such as The Jewish Virtual Library, http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/judaica/ejud_0002_0005_0_05197.html for the actual meaning of a dybbuk and then this article written by Ilil Arbel Ph.D http://www.pantheon.org/articles/d/dybbuk.html. The Ghost Village website that you are referencing is not a credible source for this information.

Thank you for your feedback. Indeed, the ibbur is always good. The text of the article will be revised to make this distinction clearer. Thank you for helping to make NWE a valuable informational resource.
