an extension of probability into the future
Original Dramatica® Definition
Projection is a means of anticipating events and situations by extending the line of how things have been happening into the future. A character that represents Projection has a good grasp of what he might look for in things to come. However, this character will give great weight to past experience so abrupt changes in direction might be ignored until it is too late.
syn. anticipation, how things will be, most likely, probable
