The reaction with the higher activation energy essentially requires more ambient energy to initiate the reaction. Changing the temperature means changing the amount of ambient energy, so a rxn with a high activation energy is initiated more easily when there is ample energy (higher temp). A rxn with a lower activation energy will not change as much because it doesn't require as much energy to initiate, so the temp change is less significant.
