Some of those personalities in those puppies will suit your lifestyle better than others.
A adventurous puppy:
is usually very good in "wanting to please you" later. In many occasions a certain amount of "independence" goes along with that line, but that is because of his nature of being an adventurer.
This puppy likes to investigate.
A passive puppy: (different than "shy") will let his litter mates take his food away, and he will avoid tussling.
But he is not a cowered, or run of in fear.
This type puppy is great for a regulated home with less commotion, car travel,and not airliners, crowded airports, or train stations .Dog shows may not be his favored thing either. (But there are always exceptions!!)
But he will thrive on extra attention, lots of extra love.
To simplify these descriptions above:
A lively, independent puppy will do well in a home with older children and adults.
Beware: there are plenty of hyper and nervous Papillons out there, bred by breeders who should not be in that business. They are like mini Border Collies, and do not represent the true breed of a Papillon/Phalene anymore.

The Papillon can adapt very well to a apartment living, or general to close indoor conditions. Provided a 30 minute brisk walk out side in a park, and/or a good play with a ball tossed through a couple of your rooms, hallway, etc, your Papi will maintain a healthy physical condition.

The Papillon /pæpijɑn/ (French for "butterfly") is a small, friendly, elegant breed of dog of the Spaniel type, distinguished from other breeds by its large butterfly-like ears. The Papillon is one of the oldest of the toy Spaniels.

The back of a couch is a favored thing to do. You may want to consider to rearrange your furniture, where your couch sits along a wall.
They can also easily wiggle them self out of young children's arms and hands,while standing. From that heights, a Papillon can break a leg or more easily.
Especially Papillon puppies are most fragile, and you should be very selective, who is going to handle your Papillon.
Make everybody sit on the floor, while handling your dog.
