|This is Delyte. My person was told that having two males, even if they are neutered, will lead to some fighting over dominance, from mild to wild, depending on the individuals. So she thought that it would be best for us to get a female kitten for our household. When there are one or more males, introducing a female means that she will be dominant, because the males remember their mother, and allow her to be in charge.
There is also cross attachment to people. Male animals usually become more attached to female people and vice versa. This is more intense with dogs but it seems to happen in cats too. The girl kitten worships my person's boyfriend and follows him around, even though he is allergic to cats and does not feed or pet her. [He does bring in all our kitty litter and take out the dirty stuff, but I am not sure either of us appreciate him for doing that. If it wasn't for him there would be no cats here!]
I think you should check the kittens yourself and see which one appeals to you the most, because it probably isn't true that all the kittens in the litter have the same personality. Also think of the personality of your resident cat. I have to say that bringing in a wild and frantic lady kitten has not made me, the big shy recluse, entirely happy, although I am willing to play with her occasionally.
Good luck with your new kitten!
