Should "Immune to Psychology" be called something different?

In 6th, "immune" to psychology only covers fear, terror, and panic, but not break tests? Why not call it not scared, unless they are? It's a poorly titled rule imo. Just got curb-stomped by slaneesh because all the so called immune to psychology stuff got their heads messed with. lol

We had been playing as it was immune to that area of the book, just skip it. but (dryads for example) still take break tests and get scared? that's dumb. lol. It also makes Lahmians much worse than Slaneesh since it singles out that if you are immune to psychology, you're immune to their bloodline powers while slaneesh doesn't. Is this a mistype? Or is Slaneesh just that overpowered that they can basically seduce the undead?

The distinction existed because break tests were not just about morale in the sense of panicking or routing, but were related to other factors too, such as undead units crumbling.

I was more concerned with how Lahmian bloodline powers didn't effect immune to psychology models while Slaneesh just did whatever to anyone when their effects were the same (seduction, etc)

That's an issue with the army books in question, rather than the core rules though. You could always make it a house rule that Lahmian powers would work or Slaanesh powers do not work. I would favour the latter over the former.
