for example, in one instance motivating this in terms of this regard,

when one is presenting a new topic or idea, it is often necessary to give a somewhat vague blanket statement implying or specifying all that is wished to be talked about in that particular element of subject matter. Reasoning would tell us that the term we should be using for the element in question is one that encompasses all the possible manifestations of that (particular) thing that we are hoping to refer to so that we can talk about. However, we can come to understand counterintuitively that if we are hoping to get the person to actually understand it, we are going to want to do/commit to the opposite function, and that is by giving them an example of the concept, or telling them about only a piece of the whole so that they may easily come to understand the whole.
