Evidence in support of the safety signal theory in humans has largely been drawn from clinical cases with anxiety disorders. As noted earlier, characteristic examples of reliance on safety signals have been observed in agoraphobic patients. What is interesting with our observations is the fact that the safety signal theory appears to be able to account for a social phenomenon or the collective behavior of large masses of people.

Some people who could not find comforting information about their safety simply created them. For example, some tried to estimate how their house would collapse during an earthquake and, if they decided, for example, it was likely to go to the left, then they would sleep in a room that was on the right side of the building. Some people who lived in the upper floors of a building tended to believe that they were safer because they had easy access to the roof where they felt they would stand a better chance of surviving in case the building collapsed.
