Sometimes you can read something that would have been totally boring to you otherwise(because of the subject matter), but feel the energy behind the words and know it as yours. Personally, I respond well to things that are balanced between calm and impassioned, willing to go beyond the obvious, and dedicated to stepping outside of what is accepted or known to find a better path. I think whether you perceive this "energy" has something to do with the Constructive/Emotive Reinin dichotomy, but I'd like to know your experience instead.
Do you read mediocre books for the "energy" behind their words or do you only read books that are well-polished and show skill? If you do notice a sort of energy influencing you, what kind of energy is this? If you prefer to read well-polished books, what do you think about people that read books for the sake of what I'm describing?
