This may be just from personal experience, but I find that the friendliest cats are Domestic Shorthairs. If they're male and neutered young, they tend to not be neurotic. They aren't overly affectionate, but they like to cuddle, sleep on your lap, rub against you - the usual stuff. I have had very bad luck with female cats. They're cute and all, but most of have them have been a little, um, shall we say insane? Tabby cats tend to be overlooked at cat shows, but they make great pets. To some degree the friendliness of a cat is determined by its personality and experiences, but the Domestic Shorthair is really a great cat. I kind of consider them to be the golden retrievers of the cat world, except much more pretentious. They're cats, after all.

domestic short hairs are generally just mutts, whihc means there is not set personality, and the only breed that would mostly depend on the individual cat. while individual cats do have individual personalities, some traits are bed into them. here are some that are made to be friendly:ragdoll - the name says it all, they will let you hold them, dress them up play with them. great with kids, my favorite breed. http://www.cfainc.org/breeds/profiles/ragdoll.htmlmaine coon - http://www.cfainc.org/breeds/profile...htmlragamuffin - like a lap dog http://www.cfainc.org/breeds/profile...fin.htmlexotic - lap cats http://www.cfainc.org/breeds/profiles/exotic.htmlbombay - very outgoing, dog like my second favorite breed http://www.cfainc.org/breeds/profiles/bombay.htmlhope that helps!

any animal which hasn't been bred specifically like a pedigree persian (they're the worse) is the best bet! Personality dosorders occur in pedigrees dur to problems with inbreeding etc. Just remember every cat has a different personality so find the one which suits you.
