Answer:

In short, emotionally "charged" memories are better (as in stronger) than boring memories

Explanation:

Just as your emotion during a moment affects the type of memory it will become, your emotional state during retrieval also affects the type of memory you retrieve. The retrieved memory will match your current emotional state.
