In his 1972 book Satan is Alive and Well on Planet Earth Hal Lindsey offers a number of tips for "diagnosing demonic possession." Here is a rundown of some of his telltale signs:

Occult Powers—"Be wary of those who have psychic powers," he writes. The ability to foretell the future could be a "gift of discernment from God," but can also be a "counterfeit from Satan."
Necromancy—Mediumistic communications with the dead are generally a "demonic deception," whereby the demon is impersonating the deceased person.
Change in Intelligence—When a demon is exerting influence over an individual there may be a "sudden or sporadic increase in the person's intelligence." He cites Hitler as an example.
Increased Strength— "I saw a demon-possessed man at Berkeley with such superhuman power it took six men to hold him down," Lindsey notes.
"Filthy" Uncontrolled Swearing—The compulsion to "blaspheme the name of God and Christ" can in tandem with other symptoms be a sign of demonic influence.
