The skills we measure are mechanical tasks, neurofeedback, quick decision making, personality, and memory.

Mechanical tasks include hand-eye coordination, reaction time, and striving for precision.

  • In hand-eye coordination, it is important to coordinate our senses and distribute attention properly and evenly.
  • The second is quick reaction time to respond to these tasks as fast as possible.
  • The final part of mechanical tasks is precision, which indicates accuracy and provides information about striving for accuracy.
  • The neurofeedback task is based on the fact that the brain can change its activity level and pattern depending on the tasks the participant receives. This section provides important information about our conscious and unconscious states. The measurement also reveals how the player can keep their cool under pressure and what decisions they make in the process.
  • Human personality greatly influences an individual’s communication, and an individual’s communication style also affects their personality. During a multiplayer game, it is essential to have appropriate communication and composure to minimize impulsive behavior. We emphasize this aspect of the task to determine how participants communicate and provide feedback on how to optimize it.
  • Perception allows an individual to acquire information about the outside world through their senses, while memory allows them to store and recall the perceived information. All of this helps the player in quick decision-making and strategy development, enabling them to make the right decisions even under pressure.
