Default Anti Squat

I'm confused by anti squat. I know it aids rear traction by allowing the car to shift weight to the rear. Just not sure which is which.

If the anti squat plate is placed underneath the front of the rear a-arm does that allow more squat or less squat? And the height of the anti squat plate which way is more or less?

Borrowed from this article

Adding Anti-Squat will make the car Squat less during acceleration. This will cause your car to track straight on straightaways. It will also make your car push coming out of corners, but loose entering corners.

Less Anti-Squat will result in the opposite: a little less forward traction, more stable entering corners, and will track through bumpy sections much better.
