My impression is that wild breeds have more motivation/ambition. Because they are less “domesticated” they can be a handful and require more attention than most people can give. You would have to think of it as having a life commitment to a significant other. I happen to like cats with strong character, since I'm not domesticated either.
Breeds I find interesting:
Caracal, Ocelot, Serval, Savannah, Ussuri, Mokave Jag Cat, Bengal, Chausie, Safari Cat, Abyssinian, Burmese, Egyptian Mau
This is an example of domestic that has strong character:
“Initially spayed for a Brooklyn bodega, little Miss Greta Derby somehow turned up 5 months later following people up and down a block in Manhattan! Young and playful, this resilient little gal is an outgoing and fearless companion.”
