It's a psychological response from my pov. Fight or flight is triggered by the brain so I see it as a psychological response. This in turn then creates the physiological response

It is but it's also very much a physiological/neurological response also.

You've already had that question answered regarding the fight/flight response, although the psychological and physiological responses are connected

One must be careful - not everything involving the brain is 'psychological'. It's a physiological, involuntary SNS response. There is a danger of conflating 'brain' and 'mind'.
