I was reading through Kirchoff's Law in the E-Book just now, and found myself confused.

The confusion I'm refering to is about Kirchoff's Law:

What I don't get it why the current (I) is highest over the lowest resistance (R1) when dealing with a parallel circuit. According to a lecture I attended recently it should be infact just the opposite since in a parallel circuit the smallest resistor has the most impact which would lead the largest amount of the current over the largest resistor, and not the smallest.

Is this a mistake, and if not how is this possible?

Thanks for your time,
