My stance is that I enjoy both, but I grow tired of an excess of either and lose attention quickly.. One is not more desired or respected above another though.
Intellectual conversation seems to stimulate the thinking process and gives insight to other people's perspectives and educations, on the other hand you learn a lot more about a person and generally life itself is ran on mindless banter. It's easy, ground-level topics that cross all boundaries.
I think both are necessary when it comes to socializing, and it's unhealthy to dislike one or the other.
So I guess my question is: Why do you dislike one or the other and why? Or are ya'll like me and are content no matter which way the conversation bends?
