Then I would suggest this hypothetical person is too emotionally fragile and delicate to live! If the psychological "trauma" of being asked some questions about where you're going, what you've packed, how long you plan to stay, chit-chat about the destination, the weather, etc. leave, as you say, "mental scars" then that person is an emotional basket case already and probably unfit to travel anywhere, by any means.
Your comment is exactly what I meant when I said hyperbole. Emotional scars? Puh-leeze. Your silly hypothetical trivializes those who have endured real trauma.
It can be deeply unpleasant, and for some people it can leave mental scars that take a very long time to heal.
