Question Can snakes sense fear?

I was having a discussion with Jessy over this topic tonight, and I wanted to see others opinions on it.

Can a snake sense the fear of it's handler? If it can, how will it react?

from my limited experience with snakes, i've come to the conclusion that although each seperate animal has it's own distinct "personality", they act primarily upon instinct. I.E. if it's warm and smells like food, then it is food.

I am curious as to what other people's thoughts and opinions are on this matter, and if there is any proof to back up either argument.
