one of the original paper-and-pencil intellect tests, formed in 1913 and modeled to evaluate capacity to plan ahead and employ logic and reasoning to the resolving of a dilemma. In its multiple different forms, the Porteus Maze Test contains a complex group of straight pathways which turn suddenly at ninety-degree angles and run into several blind alleys. Just one pathway leads directly through the maze.

PORTEUS MAZE TEST: "The Poretus Maze Test was cultivated in 1913 by Stanley I. Porteus, an Australian-American psychologist."
