which additional label would you love to see for rating TED-videos?

TED has a great feauture to rate TEDtalk video's. But sometimes after watching a video I'm looking for a specific label that doesn't exist.

Which label do you think would be a valuable addition to the existing labels?
For example: "Amazing", "Moving" or "Awkward"

[I am not part of the TED organisation, so I can't make these changes, but I thought it would be interesting to ask]

    Mar 22 2011: I just added "Insightful" To me that's slightly different from informative. To me insightful gives a hint about the value of the information where informative is more neutral.

    Mar 9 2011: Thanks Debra. I've added 'thought provoking" to the moderator.

    I just realised that there are probably several clusters of labels that will be used interchangeably. I expect for example my mentioned 'Amazing' to overlap a lot with the already existing 'Jaw dropping'.

    In the same way I expect 'thought provoking' might overlap a lot with the already existing 'fascinating'.
