Ni, on the other hand, withdraws from the world and focuses on the interpretive process itself. Instead of add up all the clues to get to the truth, Ni will consider various, often disparate ways to look at things. While it does this, Ni at the same rejects the idea that any one interpretation is the absolute truth. For Ni, the closest thing to an absolute truth would be a perspective that contains within it all the other possible perspectives, somewhat in the way that "four" contains "one," "two," and "three," depending on how you slice it.
Ni can make internal connections, too, but I would have to say that what you described sounds more like Ne to me.
