I would agree with idea of telling people not to overthink it. And I like how my teacher breaks things down, explaining there are really only a few basic movements which combine in numerous different ways. Yet somehow this is actually difficult to get your mind around when, as an adult, you rarely are taught anything anymore at such an elemental level. My teacher was showing how, for example, a molinete was not a pattern as such, but was composed of a side step, pivot, etc. and I could see the leaders looking overwhelmed. I would think you have to work your brain more to think of the invidividual elements and put them together yourself, rather than memorizing a pattern.
