You might enjoy the book The Gift of Fear by Gavin deBecker. Mr. DeBecker once worked for the FBI and became a sought after security expert for celebrities and others.

Wonderfully written. I think our instincts for survival have also changed, alongside diminishing, as we still have our gut instinct for when something doesn’t feel quite right. I think that’s something that has been passed down and adapted.
It is nice to think that we still have some of that survival instinct in us, despite living in an entirely different world.
