THE PORTEUS MAZE TEST AND DELINQUENCY

THE PORTEUS MAZE TEST AND DELINQUENCY Summary. Borstal lads have a significantly higher Q score on the Porteus Maze Test than controls. A high Q score is related to intellectual dullness and also to difference in verbal and performance intelligence. Socially, it is associated with truancy and being one of a large family, and, to some extent, with having a worse prognosis as a delinquent. Although the Q score tends to fall during Borstal training, it is not significantly associated with absconding or repeated punishment. The Q score showed little relationship with any of the scales of the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory, except the manic scale; but is associated with muscular physique. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png British Journal of Educational Psychology Wiley

Abstract

Summary. Borstal lads have a significantly higher Q score on the Porteus Maze Test than controls. A high Q score is related to intellectual dullness and also to difference in verbal and performance intelligence. Socially, it is associated with truancy and being one of a large family, and, to some extent, with having a worse prognosis as a delinquent. Although the Q score tends to fall during Borstal training, it is not significantly associated with absconding or repeated punishment. The Q score showed little relationship with any of the scales of the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory, except the manic scale; but is associated with muscular physique.
