* People practicing emergency procedures (ranging from escaping a house to engaging an attacker, see below) are advised to practice them repeatedly so when the real emergency comes, they will be able to do it "on autopilot".
* Martial arts specifically make you able to fight without thinking. Accidents may ensue if an attack-like gesture provokes a violent reflex before you can stop yourself. Played for laughs in some anime.

* Cops are often trained that way, too. There's a good reason for this. When you're confronted with an armed suspect that's shooting at you, if you don't react quickly enough, you'll be killed.

* Anyone in emergency medicine. When you're seeing humans (or animals) that are near death every day, multiple times a day, all you can do is shut down your own emotions because they only get in the way. They care -- they wouldn't be practicing medicine for a living if they didn't -- but there's no time to cry over a dog that's got hit by a car when in the next room you have a cat with a shredded leg at risk of amputation.
* Often used to deal with grief. If someone has just died or is about to die and has given instructions on what to do immediately following (concerning funeral arrangements, matters of estate, etc.), the person following them may enter a Safe Mode to carry them out: not joining the rest of the family in bereavement until the instructions are complete.
* This is how you're supposed to respond when you car has a severe mechanical fault appear while on the road, such as a brake failure or an engine fire (or both at once, if you're really unlucky) or you're involved in an accident. You need to avoid panicking, get out of traffic, get the car stopped, and put on your flashers. Then you can deal with what happened, emotionally.

* Although it's usually a very literal BerserkButton, Comicbook/{{X 23}} once weaponized the trigger scent in this manner: During the "Not Forgotten" arc of ''Comicbook/{{X-Force}}, X was recaptured by the Facility and severely tortured. She was rescued by a Comicbook/{{SHIELD}} operative, but the two were surrounded by soldiers. Laura was short an arm (Kimura hacked it off with a ''chainsaw'' during said torture) and could barely even stand due to severe shock, blood loss, and emotional stress, much less fight. Since the trigger scent removes all her inhibitions, eliminates her conscious thought processes by putting her on autopilot, and turns her into a whirling ball of adamantium-bladed death that ''will. Not. Stop.'' until everything marked with it is dead, she reasoned her best chance of survival and escape was to flood the entire complex with it. [[OneManArmy It worked.]]

* In the ''Manga/{Bleach}}/''Manga/FairyTail'' crossover fic ''Protector of the Fairies'', this happens to Ichigo after he unintentionally kills someone for the first time. Gildarts later runs into him on the way back to the guild, and he's still [[HeroicBSOD minimally responsive]].
