1. What is AQ index?
Among the group of 10 intelligence indexes intensively studied by scientists around the world, most of us are familiar with Emotional Intelligence (EQ) or Intelligence Quotient (IQ) but in fact, There are very few people who know and learn about Adversity Quotient (AQ).
AQ (Adversity Quotient) index, also known as the “overcoming difficulty index”: is an indicator that measures a person’s ability to cope with adversity in life. AQ is the closest metric in the world to measuring human response and ability to deal with challenges and adversities in moments of being caught off guard.
There have been hundreds and thousands of scientific studies about IQ, EQ, SQ, and almost AQ that are often ignored because the nature of the work of companies around the world has not yet required candidates to possess this type of index. But for scientists, those who possess the great ability of the AQ index understand the special importance of this index because AQ is directly related to work productivity, agility, problem-solving, morale, performance, growth, leadership, and optimism when facing difficulties.
The AQ does not give us the strength to overcome challenges, but the AQ can give us great methods to face all of life’s challenges.
2. AQ Index in Plant Empires
We can cultivate and develop our AQ through events we encounter anywhere. In Plant Empires, players will always have to face difficult situations and levels that require patience as well as perseverance to learn and strategize to overcome.
AQ is divided into 3 groups of people: Quitter, Camper, and Climber. Plant Empires are also designed to separate these groups of people, thereby installing other elements to upgrade and develop the player’s AQ. Each time you pass a level, the player will gain more experience, the more important the level is, the more valuable the player will be. Besides, players will learn how to distribute and balance their resources as well as arrange squads and strategize to pass levels. When failing or not passing, players will have to find a way to try to overcome challenges and thereby train AQ – an extremely important metric to develop themselves through small events like daily entertainment.
Besides entertaining factors, Plant Empires is also a mobile game that integrates a measure for AQ index – an important indicator for self-development.
