From my personal experience,  I wonder if this concept only applies to language or if it, at least for some people, it apllies for their whole way of thinking about the world.
I've noticed that some people on the autism spectrum learn this way: They don't learn in little steps one-by-one, but seem to be "waiting" for the "whole picture" to be available to them. Once they got it, they practically output the correct information all at once (leaving other people baffeld, "where did that come from? How could he know? He didn't practise!").
