Egyptian Tortoise Temperament

I've been debating on buying a Russian Tortoise or a Egyptian Tortoise. I've been also thinking about breeding the Egyptian Tortoise because their on the endangered species list
On the internet, I have found vast amounts of information about the Russian Tortoise. Mostly every website writes that the Russian Tortoise is nice and friendly to humans.
I have been trying to find information about the temperament or social behavior of the Egyptian Tortoise. I read that Egyptian Tortoises are shy. I was wondering if you had any information about the temperament of the Egyptian Tortoise? Would an Egyptian Tortoise sit in my lap? Or be kinda and nice to me?
Would a Russian Tortoise or a Egyptian Tortoise have a better temperament around their owners?
Thank you so much!!
