Due to the things I have been reading and observing lately, I wonder: what is the importance of an "unbalanced" psyche to the aesthetics of his/her oeuvre?
The trigger of this thought was the fact that I have observed that people who are very calm, well-centered, rarely have the deep and explosive passion that takes them to the obsession that is (apparently?) required for the creation of beautiful books, paintings, music, science, or others. Moreover, I think that maybe those individuals who are "super balanced" might not generally be the most fascinating; there is something about "unbalanced" individuals that seems to be attractive/fascinating to the general public.
Anyways, this is a new idea in me. I am currently looking for sources about this and I have not found any. Maybe it is because I am not sure how to look for it.
(Please forgive me if I failed to produce the technically correct terms. I am not a psychologist nor a philosopher, I am just an enthusiast.)
Thank you very much.
