••••••• is Intolerable-Range, [ and ] survival limits, !!!!!!! is Failure-Range, = is Success-Range.
> = Goal, >+ is Stretch Target, >? Is Wish-Target (better than the Goal Level).


Note: A Success-Range is one or more ranges, depending on qualifiers, on a defined Scalar Attribute which are at or above the Planned-Level (Goal) and below any upper Tolerable-Limit – that is also to say within any Survival Limit. It includes relevant Stretch Levels and any relevant Wish Levels which are above the Goal Level. It specifically does not include the Tolerable-Range below the Goal Level.

Where the lower limit of the Success-Range is meeting the specified Goal (left >) Level. The upper limit of the Success-Range is denoted by the best extent of the Attribute (infinity, 100% or 0% as the nature of the Attribute may dictate) as iconically indicated by the Scale Attribute arrow tip at the right hand side of the icon above (>===>). The Success-Range specifically includes stretch and Wish-Target Levels.
