Understanding current things differently (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

insight

Here is my best explanation:

'understanding' is the definition.

(insight is a kind of understanding)

'current things differently' is the subsidiary indication.

'current' becomes 'i' (symbol for electric current).

'differently' indicates an anagram.

'things' with letters rearranged gives 'nsight'.

'i'+'nsight'='insight'

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for insight that I've seen before include "Awareness", "Deep understanding", "Deep perception of a situation", "Perceptiveness", "The ability to perceive the true nature of something", "Special knowledge", "Perception", "Understanding", "Things I have understanding of" and "Intuitive understanding".)
