Science seems to confirm the political stereotype of ordered but stupid rightwingers and messy but clever lefties.
According to the New Scientist we all have (and need) both intuitive and analytical methods to solve problems. But conservatives tend toward mainly intuitive solutions and lefties analytical.
Intuitive methods are quicker and accurate enough in most circumstances. Whereas analytical methods are slower but less prone to error.
So Tories rely on emotion and gut instinct (or prejudice) to make quick decisions. While lefties dither over the facts but tend to get it right more of the time. Which is better depends on your viewpoint.
