That's neither a natural tendency nor an interesting psychological phenomenon. You just made that up.

Semicolons at the end of a statement are as natural as a full stop "." at the end of a sentence, regardless of whether the sentence is the last in a paragraph. The verification process whether a line "looks syntactically correct" takes longer than just hitting the ";" key, and the chances of a wrong assessment of "correct" may lead to wrong behavior of the software.

Language-aware editors inform you about a missing semicolon by indenting the following line as a continuation of the statement in the previous line, so it is hard to miss.

If, on the other hand, you want to omit semicolons, then the discussion should have informed you that you aren't going to find followers.
