I understand the historical and cultural influences, but there has to be some sort of aberrant psychological kick that these people get from participating in events such as exorcism. It may have to do with their obsession with "the light" and denying, in themselves, that which could be called their "shadow selves". Note that I am not speaking in a religious context. By denying the shadow self, it consumes them and they manifest the shadow. I suspect the fundamentalist exorcists are as sick as the so-called possessed persons.
