Inciteful does not appear in most dictionaries, however it sounds like it means "that which incites". The Oxford English Dictionary defines it as a synonym for provocative.


There is a word 'insightful' which means perceptive, 'inciteful' is not well known as a word.

I believe the word you're referring to is 'inciting'

- incite - provoke or stir up; "incite a riot"; "set off great unrest among the people" etc. etc.
