You should expose for the subject that's important, first and foremost.

If you have room to play with when allowing for the subject ( always the priority ) then you can prioritize over-exposing a little to gain shadow detail or under-exposing a little to gain highlights.

What you should ‚Äčnever‚Äč do is do something "always".

First the subject, then the rest.  Each shot has it's own priorities and you should not lock yourself into a mental framework of one being better that the other.  By doing something "always" you default to one or the other, rather than making a decision based on the specific shot.
