They need autonomy to make choices about what seems important. Without student choices and ownership, the student's motivation to be creative is lost. Students who are too directed feel put upon to do as they are told for some external reward, but they are bored and often hate the process. It is not the teacher's role to provide the zinger suggestion, even when it feels like an inspired idea. To do so robs the student of ownership as well as creative problem solving experience.
