I have never been accused of being obscure before!?!
Unclear at times but never obscure. Let me try a different approach... perhaps that will help?
Let me try it this way, I tell you a technique you have not done before. It involves very specific mental focus/image you are to use. Use a physical technique, I want to see the power you have doing it? Now add the mental technique I told you.
If, if that gives you more power or better yet very consistantly so
... How would you classify that improvement of power to your technique? Nothing different physically in how you did it... You added a particular mental concentration, a mental technique and recieved a tangibly different result in power doing so according to your partner.
