Inspiration is a major thing in my life, especially in my artwork. I need it to keep going.
This is primordial for NFs, according to Keirsey.
As an INFJ, inspiration generally springs from people for me.
I know this is a very wide subject, so what inspires you?

People(particularly young people and the elderly)
Relationships between people
Displays of courage
The awesomeness of nature
Beauty, whatever that may mean in the moment
Romance of every kind
I'm inspired by life in general.There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

This might sound strange - but history. Especially from a purely creative standpoint, I'm very inspired by different movements in art and culture.
I sometimes also get neat ideas for stories or short films while I'm riding my bike.
Certain types of architecture, too, give me ideas about things to write.

What inspires me? When I see a group of people work together for a greater cause..
When I see those who are suffering pull through.
When I see those who work hard, yet get little respect, but they keep on trying.
What inspires me are the simple things in life.. those special moments that leave an imprint on me.. the little idiosyncrasies that really capture a sense of meaning that colors my life.
Most of all, what inspires me is the courage people have for one another when it comes to love..

People, almost exclusively. Books (which are still people).

I don't usually think about what inspires me, but I find that things that are well put together and thought-provoking are inspiring. It inspires me to try and be as good as that.
I think I'm attracted and inspired just by things that can be without worry, since it is so hard for me to be.'Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and its better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.' - Marilyn Monroe

I think it's just the nature of the NF personality type that almost anything can inspire you -- you tend to live for those moments -- but I do have to be in a relaxed frame of mind -- then it's just whatever's out there that gets me going, even if I have to create an issue, like moving the furniture around cause I've got nothing better to do at the moment!
