In logic, extensionality, or extensional equality refers to principles that judge objects to be equal if they have the same external properties. It is the opposite concept of intensionality, which is concerned with whether two descriptions are intended to be the same or not. Having an identical set of attributes or metadata to describe two different things would place them into the same class by extension.
The opposite concept from extension is intension.
