Interesting research questions
The "I" represents intrinsic and extrinsic interest in answering a research question
The opinions and contributions of your colleagues plays an important role in writing interesting research questions. Research is always a collaborative effort and should not be conducted in isolation. Seek out mentors and peers to discuss your research and welcome other pertinent suggestions and ideas. Recruit other interested individuals to work with you on the proposed study. Interesting research questions tend to attract other motivated researchers naturally.
Seek out funding institutions such as the NIH (National Institutes of Health) or NSF (National Science Foundation) to see if they are currently funding proposals in the area of interest. If they are, then your research question is interesting (especially in academic research environments). If they are not, your study is still interesting. Build a strong rationale for conducting the study and become vested in the literature!
