Kirk cherishing his flaws/pain gives him a nice character moment but only at the expense of trashing the rest of the cast's characters, since none of them apparently were deep thinkers and easily gave in to Sybok's pain-sharing blabber.
This was a horribly thought out plot point. Although the novel gives some explanation, the movie never makes it clear whether Sybok is simply convincing people through smooth talking, controlling them through some type of telepathy, or a combination of the two.
Yeah, that's one of my big problems with the movie. It's a bit muddled . . . .
