I can't recall the source, but this reminded me of the words of a
motivational speaker who claimed that (in our culture) telling someone
"why" was a mark of respect while only telling them "how, what, when,
where, etc." was a sign of disdain. His claim was that each of us
intuitively regards hearing the "why" as a sign that we are part of the
greater team.
