Here are some examples that the bullshit generator gave me. Try it. It's fun.

Quote: Purpose is the nature of faith,
and of us. To follow the mission
is to become one with it.

Yes, it is possible to obliterate
the things that can disrupt us,
but not without transcendence
on our side.

Through numerology, our brains are
immersed in purpose. You will soon
be re-energized by a power deep
within yourself — a power that is
divine, powerful. As you dream, you
will enter into infinite transformation
that transcends understanding.

It is time to take will to the next level.
The future will be a psychic
blossoming of knowledge. It is in
evolving that we are re-energized.

Only a traveller of the multiverse
may generate this transmission of
transcendence. Yearning is born in
the gap where empathy has been
excluded. You must take a stand
against yearning.

Today, science tells us that the
essence of nature is insight. Nothing
is impossible. Coherence is a
constant.

The Law of Attraction may be the
solution to what’s holding you back
from an unfathomable flow of
curiosity. How should you navigate
this transformative world? Although
you may not realize it, you are
psychic.

Imagine a redefining of what could
be. We must develop ourselves and
recreate others. Eons from now, we
messengers will exist like never
before as we are re-energized by the
quantum soup.
Egor?

So... As Craig obviously believes unequivocally in the paranormal (defined as lying beyond normal experience and/or scientific explanation) does this mean he's unintelligent? He also describes himself as an analytic Christian philosopher. How then does he satisfy the description of being "not be the most analytical or intelligent"?

Or are the quoted study's conclusions subject to some error?

The study doesn't seem to have WLC or folks like him in mind. It appears more centered around folks who make up Chopra's audience, perhaps also Joel Osteen's audience.

There is no difference between WLC and Chopra or Osteen. WLC is a theistic charlatan who panders to the lowest common denominator with profound sounding bullshit.

Being nice is something stupid people do to hedge their bets
