Oh, my bad, your comment actually makes sense that way xD

Let's clarify. I am interpreting your use of "chances" to mean the probability of enjoyment. As such the probability to find enjoyment would the same across every episode of anime watched. Watching different anime would not effect the probability of finding enjoyment.

Sorry but that is just not true.

Age, gender, upbringing, social status, education etc. all heaviliy influence the probability of you liking a show and thus liking an episode (let's just say there is higher chance of liking the episode of a show you enjoy overall, than that of a show you don't). That is in the form of preference. I don't like ecchi, I don't like harem, I don't like shounen-ai, I don't like specific VA's. So on. The probability of enjoyment would be a lot higher on a show that is in the top 250, seinen or maturish shounen, or good shoujo. Or just the probability that I'll enjoy Natsume Yuujinchou Shi.

Let's say I enjoyed 80% of the episodes in my completed list, that is 4377 and 30% in my dropped list, that is 232. Overall 4609/6246 (let's not concern ourselves with episode length here, same could be done with time spent on). 73,791% chance of me liking an episode based on my dropped and completed list. I can tell you that the chances that I'll like pure shounen-ai or pure ecchi is below 30%. Chances that I'll like a sequel to an anime that is on my favourite list is above 90% (more like above 99).

I might've misunderstood you again, if so I'm sorry. Pretty tired atm.

I never said the chances of liking or disliking an anime was the same for each person.

Nor am I going to manufacture numbers in order to make my case.
