I think it will probably take at least one or two (possibly more?) bites to get your brain to realize that it is overreacting. They are more startling than anything, happens so fast you don't usually feel it with a lot of small - medium sized snakes. Its more jsut the action of being bit thats scary, not the bite itself I've been bitten more times than I could possibly count, snake bites aren't bad at all

I don't think its so much that they sense your fear, as the fact that when you are scared you hesitate and your nervous movements make the snake nervous. They don't know what on earth your doing
