commitment

Commitment is being committed to something.

Making a commitment between yourself and another person has a primal weight. This is assumed because in a tribal situation, such commitments were easily seen made. Other commitments, such as marriage, were made in full view of the entire tribe.

Don't tell, ask for a commitment.

Don't say "Please return the book." Ask: "Will you return the book?" Forming the request as a question they have to answer activates whatever mechanism which creates a commitment.
