>People with paranoid schizophrenia tend to spend a lot of time pondering complex ideas about what other minds might be up to, whereas people with autism characteristically think very little about what is on others’ minds.<
Thomas Suddendorf

[In analogy to hypothesis testing, there are two maladaptive possibilities: (A) a person can suffer from a lack of ability to spot existing patterns, regularities and relationships (B) a person can suffer from a tendency to perceive patterns, regularities and relationships where no patterns, regularities and relationships exist. It is unlikely that those two tendencies are completely unrelated. Perhaps, on average, brighter people tend to harbor fewer superstitious beliefs. Although, in my opinion, some superstitious beliefs of brighter people are simply not labeled as such.]
