But how do you approach post crash riding? How do you get over it and go just as fast as you were. Do you slow down at all after a crash? Or are you like Marquez? Get annoyed and go even faster.

This is why it is important to understand why you crashed.
I think it is first of all important to understand why you crashed so that you can ensure that you don't do it again. Were you on the brakes too long in the turn, did you run wide, did you try to ride too fast on cold tires etc…First step is to figure this out, like really figure it out.
Then I think you want to pick one thing to work on at a time and begin building your confidence back up. How quickly you are able to do this will depend on each rider but I think if you have something SPECIFIC to work on when you go back out you will less likely be nervous about your previous crash and you will be more dedicated to conquering your fear.
For example, if you crashed because you carried the brakes into the corner too far then I would work on adjusting your RP's for that corner, changing up your braking marker and maybe giving yourself an "End of braking marker" to work on. From there you can add more RP's to your overall amount and work up your pace a little at a time.
If you simply try to go out and ride around at the pace you did before you will struggle, but if you give yourself a systematic approach to building yourself back up you will improve.
Reference points are a great place to start but what other skills might you want to choose as your "one thing" to work on?
