In brief: Variety

Non epileptic seizures are not true seizures.
they are considered psychogenic and can present with almost any type of event that looks like a seizure. Often need an EEG to distinguish.

Staring, uneven shaking with the eyes closed, falling to thew ground unexpectedly, and the like have been seen.
Some epileptic seizures can also look like this, so we rely on eeg and observation.
