Are you left-wing brained or right-wing brained?

Study finds left-wing brain, right-wing brain - Los Angeles Times
M appeared four times more frequently than W, conditioning participants to press a key in knee-jerk fashion whenever they saw a letter.

Liberals had more brain activity and made fewer mistakes than conservatives when they saw a W, researchers said. Liberals and conservatives were equally accurate in recognizing M. Researchers got the same results when they repeated the experiment in reverse, asking another set of participants to tap when a W appeared.Are liberals smarter and more accurate, is this what this is saying?
Seems to be suggesting that liberals are less-prone to knee-jerk reactions, they think about things more, and they make less mistakes.

Sounds about right to me.
