    I discuss all of these topics, but my favorite conversations revolve around ideas.

    I prefer to talk about ideas and theories, but I like to make those ideas relevant by discussing how those ideas and theories relate to actual people and reality in general.

    I'm also the least likely to gossip than just about anyone I know. Unless it's about something truly bizzare that someone did, it just bores me.

    Put me in the "they talk about the same things but in different ways" camp. I hate focusing on details, get really bored talking about day-to-day life, and I love talking about politics, society, culture, ideology, etc... BUT, within that, my scope is narrow and real.

    Say I'm having a political conversation with one of my N friends... I might be thinking about demographics or messaging or changing coalitions. Maybe I reference some kind of historical precedent. My N friend, on the other hand, is more likely to get fed up with all the back and forth and might want to put it in a grander (and more abstract) context. They might wonder if the entire concept of a nation-state is obsolete, if capitalism or socialism is an effective economic system, etc...
