I agree that it might be better to get 2 birds rather than one. 11 hours a day all alone is hard on such a social animal. If you get 2, regardless of species, they will most likely bond more strongly to each other than to people, simply because of time spent together, but that doesn't mean they won't still enjoy spending time with people as well.
It will just be especially important that you get birds that are tame and well-socialized to people, and you give them plenty of quality attention when you are able to.
