Why is fighting 'not very effective' against psychic?

I always thought that Psychic types held a defensive advantage over Fighting-types for the same reason the Byakugan and Sharingan gave advantage over physical moves in the Naruto world (I kinda dislike using this an example but meh~). Instead of actual visual prowess, Psychic types can probably foresee where a Fighting move may land and adjust accordingly to lower the impact. Inversely, Dark (Evil type in japanese IIRC) types and Ghost types probably invade a Psychic types mind and use their power of foresight against them or cloud their judgment, which is why they would be super effective against Psychic types.
Also, being a Psychic type doesn't necessarily mean the Pokemon is intelligent. (e.g. Slowbro)

And held themselves as masters of the sea
I've held them down beneath the crushing tide
Till they have learned that no one masters me
