Hi, you must be Carol.
Hi, you might be Carol.
Suppose you make and appointment with a real state broker. You both agree to meet at a certain place, at a certain hour.
When you see the lady that you presume is Carol (the real state broker), you say one of the sentences above.
Which one is the right one and why?

Because so many circumstances point to it being Carol, 'must' is the most natural. 'must' says, "Putting together all the facts available to me, this is the only logical conclusion". But, in the final analysis, it just might not be Carol.
Someone could say, "You just might be Carol" as a kind of joke, an understatement.
