    Huh. Not sure I’d really evaluate someone in terms of either. I prefer if they can make me laugh and also laugh at my jokes/stories, and are kind and fun to be around, and maybe a little bit quirky.

    I like it when people have thought about their values and about human relationships/interactions. That is what I care about most. I am interested in why people behave as they do, mostly so I can improve my relationships with them.

    But I don't really go about selecting my friends based on their 'interesting mind' or their 'interesting life'. Or I guess everyone seems to have an interesting mind and life to me, because everyone comes from a different background, seems to have done different things with their talents and situation, to have different views on the same topic and to have arrived at those views differently. I've never met somebody who was 100% predictable.


    UGH I am sorry I didn't answer the question at all...

    Also, I very much get the impression with some I've met that they've tried to travel a lot, do "cool things" etc etc to make themselves look interesting. And frankly, they're still boring and shallow and didn't get much out of what they did.
    Same here.

    Interesting mind. If someone has an interesting life, I feel like I have nothing to contribute to the conversation cos my life would be boring in comparison to theirs! Would be great to learn about someone else's interesting life experiences though. Just wouldn't guarantee that I would have much to say afterwards, other than asking them more questions about their experiences and what they have learned from them.

    interesting mind

    people who dont have interesting mind cant have interesting life imo, maybe on the first look, but when you look closer it is boring. i dont care have you been on all continents.. i care what did you learn there, your thoughts.

    Im interested to know how different types answer to this
    An interesting mind could make a trip to the grocery store fascinating whereas just an interesting life does not amount to great/intriguing speaker/motivator/conversation piece. Life is what happens to you, your mind is what you create yourself. And self-creation is sexy.

    I think this is true, but, it's also important to note that those I am most drawn to, and classify as most 'Interesting', have both interesting minds/thoughts, as well as interesting and varied life experiences. Others won't have life experiences as part of their classification of 'Interesting'. But it isn't really either/or as to my preferences, it is in fact both.

    I must confess, I am going to kind of go against the grain here and say I am not super interested in someone who has a mind full of amazing thoughts and ideas, but who in the end sits at home and doesn't actualize any of it. Doesn't do anything with his life. That can be a turnoff for me (ack..I think contextually this applies more to a romance/life partner), but then I'm also one who is really big on getting out and experiencing new things. To try to be close to someone who was not? Well, at the end of the day half of myself wouldn't be fulfilled. Experiences are part of what I consider a rich life, but then, this of course is just my personal value system & definition of 'rich life'. Sure, these Interesting Minds who stay home all day might be fascinating to talk to, and I would gain something from that mental stimulation/connection, but it's not the end all be all for me. On the other hand, someone who just tacks off experiences without having anything percolating up in their brain, well, that's not good either.
