Behavior - even behavior problems - is often a response to an (inappropriate) environment. Over- or under-exposure, uncertainty, unclear structures, communication difficulties or -misunderstanding  evoke appropriate responses, which might seem incomprehensible and meaningless for us.

In this sense, this behavior is often learned in the interaction with the environment and the original trigger sometimes no longer immediately recognizable.
