What I mean when saying subjective experiences is for example "God spoke to me" or something like that.

While anecdotes often have little place in debates, I find myself using them in a similar way of when using hypotheticals or thought experiments. I suppose one could reword their anecdotes into hypotheticals, but I don't see the difference most times when that is how they're being used.

That being said, I do agree that usually people try to use anecdotes in place of statistics which is useless.
