One way of thinking about the difference is that in por qué questions the speaker is seeking to know the cause of something, while para qué questions focus on the purpose or intention of something. There is an overlap, and it is often possible to substitute por qué for para qué, but not always the other way around. Whereas the question ¿por que? might be thought of as "Why?" the question ¿para qué? might be thought of as "What for?" Add Comment.

Here's an interesting article on the difference between "para que" and "por que."

I certainly don't advocate being beligerant, but if you happen to be fed up with someone's foolish advice, for example, the beligerant way to ask "Why" would be, "¿Para qué?" rather than ¿Por qué?" Even the intonation is different and this really adds a lot of emotion to the phrase. Add Comment.
