What do you understand by the �Smoke Detector Principle� in psychology?

The Smoke Detector Principle refers to the idea that the human brain is designed to be paranoid by nature and it acts as a natural defence mechanism for protection against any threat to its survival chances. Defences such as fighting, coughing, stress, etc. are usually expressed to a certain degree which is nearly optimum for protection against a possible threat. Many models which are based on these principles suggest that it is important for making decisions in life.
