Why you say "you're being + adjective" instead of just saying "you are + adjective"?

You can use "you're being + adjective" to show that it is a temporary way of being, not permanent. "You're being silly" (right now). Usually you are not silly.

You use "you're being + adjective" in the meaning of "to behave". For example You are being naughty.
