Attention varies due to the cognitive load you have. Many signs of danger can be appreciated preattentively - or automatically. What increases your ability to those is training such that the perceptual signs of evil move from something that needs focal attention and cognitive capacity to ones that rely on quick and automatic schema.

You can also learn things like checking your six and other ways to orient your attentional spotlight and unhook it from one target.

Practice is what is need to accomplish the move to automaticity of threat assessment.
