I was just realizing that teaching is another area where Ni shows up for me. For example, I have a pretty clear philosophy and broad goals of what I want to accomplish. However, it feels like I need time to think and be exposed to a variety of sources and then have time for it all to boil around before a specific plan emerges. When it does emerge though, a lot of different thoughts, sources, possibilities and interesting ways of doing things are synthesized together into something that is fairly fleshed out and full blown. It's like a camera lens coming into clear focus. I'm not really quite sure when it will, but have realized that there's not a lot of point in trying to nail something down until that percolating time has happened as the product will be much better in the end and will come much easier if I just wait. If the broad goals are in place to give direction, the specifics materialize in time.
