When we say, for example, “Why did you speak harshly to me?” we may in fact be searching for some explanation of that behavior. Perhaps the person was distracted by some pressing problem or is simply having a bad day. However, me things that much or most of the time, the “why?” question is simply a dishonest way of saying something to the effect of: “I didn’t like it when you spoke harshly to me!” The “Why?” simply creates confusion and provokes the individual to frantically manufacture some explanation when often an explanation does not even exist.
