The Inspiration Poll

I am doing some research on what inspires people – as a prelude to writing a book on the subject. I'm interested in the phenomenon of "inspiration triggers" – the experiences (internal or external) that help people contact the feeling of inspiration.

INSPIRATION:

  1. "The feeling, within the body, of elevated energy and enthusiasm."
  2. "A supernatural influence which enables people to receive and communicate divine truth."

On a scale of 1-5, please rate each of the following triggers for how much they inspire YOU.
1 = Not at all
2 = A little
3 = Somewhat
4 = Quite a bit
5 = A great deal
