Dramatica Definition: Possibility

Possibility • [Element] dyn.pr. Probability<–>Possibility • a determination that something might be true • The Possibility element endows a character with an open-minded assessment of his environment and relationships. However, it gives less weight to the single most likely explanation, looking instead at the whole range of known alternatives. Since the most likely scenario does not always happen, the Possibility element aids in having “Plan B” ready. On the downside, this characteristic may “over think” things and lose track of what is most probable. • syn. plausibility, viability, conceivable eventualities, open assessment
