Hi here is a following sentence. I know what is wrong with it, but I can't find the word to replace the incorrect word.
Intense preoccupation on technique appears to be the one trait that great pianists have in common.
***The word that is wrong is "on," but I don't know what word to replace it with. Can you guys help?

It should be 'with'.

What's funny is that I don't know /why/. I always see 'with' used here, but have no clue why it is that way. Does anyone know if it has a reason for not being 'for' or 'of' instead, or is it just arbitrary?
