    which is most claims for most of us)

    What dos "which is most claims for most of us" mean? Does it mean it happens a lot that " people with above-average IQ encounter claims that they know little about "?

    ======================
    A common myth most of us intuitively accept is that there is a negative correlation between

    intelligence and belief: as intelligence goes up belief in superstition or magic goes down. This, in fact, turns out not to be the case, especially as you move up the IQ spectrum. When people with above-average IQ encounter claims that they know little about (which is most claims for most of us), intelligence is usually not a factor in belief, with one exception: once people commit to a belief, the smarter they are the better they are at rationalizing those beliefs. Thus, smart people believe weird things because they are skilled at _________ beliefs they arrived at for nonsmart reasons.

    Re: which is most claims for most of us)

    For most of us, "claims they know little about" constitutes most of the claims we encounter.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
