Not necessarily, for a few reasons. Many people disagree with the idea of hard wiring and instead feel we all have choices, and all of us have been influenced by numerous things (societal, familial, etc.) in life that bring us to where we are. Additionally, many,many people who practice monogamy understand and even admire polyamory as a choice, but simply feel it is not for them.

Blanket statements about any group of people really aren't of much use and often are not accurate. I think it's more important to figure out for yourself what feels right for you and embrace it, without worrying about what to call yourself unless there is some purpose that establishing a label would serve for you.
The world opens up... when you do.
