It's hard to say which breed is more friendly, I know a girl who went out of her way to visit a breeder who had a conure chick every couple of days for a few months before she brought him home. He was her dream bird but she found after a couple of months he didn't really want to have much physical hands on interaction with her. He liked dancing with her and playing with toys with her but he wasn't really interested in her handling him. Odd... but all breeds can develop a personality over time so its hard to say exactly what you might end up with.
I do know you have to be there for the bird and show you care all the time. You have to put in the time and effort to keep that trust up with a physical hands on interaction or the bird will start to ignore you and your hands.
I've had cockatiels in the past that were really friendly and all about being hands on and learning to mimic speech and anything I said. They liked being in my hands when I turned on the tap so they could bath, they loved me blow drying them with the hair dryer. It was fun watching them so happy and excited while being around me all the time demanding my time.
One time I left my home one morning and a woman on the street said, "oh your bird likes to hang on your back and travel with you? How cute!"
I was shocked to find my cockatiel had jumped on my jacket as I was leaving the house and I had no idea. She hung on while I walked 2 blocks from home. She didn't fly away or freak out she just hung on while I did my thing. She had never been outside before and she wasn't clipped so she could have easily flown away but she was really into me so she trusted the situation and hung on. Lucky for me!!!!!!
I like tiels, they are funny little birds full of personality and spunk but I also know conures who are just as fun and full of personality as tiels.
So its hard to tell you which is the better bird.
