What is the psychological component of someone who tells a spouse "You're not challenging"?

Many years ago my husband left our family saying I wasn't "challenging" to him. I had often heard him say that about any job he had: "They're not challenging me." I've tried for decades to try to figure out the psychology of this type of thinking. Perhaps some men who write here have had the same type of feeling and can explain it. Of course, along with that sentence, came, "I can't tell you my feelings". I'm thinking "Sheldon Cooper" of the Big Bang Theory here, or ? Advice is not necessary since that part of my life ended a long time ago. I'm just trying to understand the psychology of it.
