Thats how think of them i treat my KB that way i try to avoid getting to close to her. Pretty T but i want to avoid bites i don't think my T's are nice by any means or for holding. Your right bites happen because people start to think they won't get bite or think the T won't bite them.In 25 years of keeping T's off and on, I've never taken a bite from any T.
I treat the pokeys as if they're deadly, with the same respect I'd give a Temple Viper. Doing so, I don't become complacent, and I don' ever get bit.
Bites happen for one reason and one reason only - complacency.
