Why psychic super effective against poison?

I just want to know the logic behind this cause last time I checked, the brain doesn't work too well when a neurotoxin is rushing though the body. Come to think of it, poison should be effective against psychic and fighting.

Psychic pokemon have enough brains to not consume obviously poisonous substances? Maybe?

That'a the best I can come up with, really. I usually have answers for strange type matchups, but this one's hard.

Another person searching for something that isn't in Pokemon. Here's a half-assed reason I came up with in 5 seconds.

Psychic Pokemon can mess up the volatile liquids that most poison type Pokemon store in their bodies and/or telepathically tear apart their semi-liquid or gaseous forms.

Why is ice strong against dragon, why is it weak to fairy?
Why is dark strong against ghost?
Why is ghost taking damage from poison aren't they already dead?

But poisons/toxins (depending on type) shut down cell communication. It's killing the nerve-system.

Dragon's are reptiles, reptiles hate cold. Dragons's weak to enchanted weapons in some stories.
Ghosts are not used to being attacked in their own element.
They're spirit is poisoned with soul poison.

It's the mindset that a strong mind can purify the body and soul, basically.
