Interlude (on Plato's Ion)

Please name one or more "influences" that, at some point in your past, had you under their spell -- and from which, in the time since, you have freed yourself.

For example:
  • When I was 17-years old, I loved an inspirational fiction writer called Og Mandino. Haven't read him in fourteen years.
  • When I was 21-years old, I read everything Ayn Rand ever wrote. Haven't read her since I was 22.
And so on. I want to know if I'm the only one who goes through these kinds of infatuations-then-detachments.
