Please share your DPP settings and picture style

I am new in Canon DPP (version 3.8), previously used Adobe ACR. I appreciate if your share your experience and skills on DPP to process photos. So, what settings do you use in:

RAW Tab:

1. Contrast
2. Hightlight
3. Shadow
4. Color Tone
5. Color Saturation
6. Sharpness

RGB Tab:

7. Tone curve
8. Brightness
9. Contrast
10. Hue
11. Saturation
12. Sharpness

NR/Lens/ALO Tab:

13. Auto Lighting Optimizer
14. Noise Reduction (RAW, TIFF/JPEG)
15. Lens Aberration Correction (for Kit Lenses, Nifty Fifty and others)

Contrast, Sharpness and Saturation exist under both RAW and RGB. What is the difference? I think the Brightness under RAW tab is equivalent to Digital Exposure Compensation, am I right? When you shoot RAW, do you set WB in camera or leave it to AWB all the times?

For shooting jpeg in the camera, do you use picture style? If yes, you change default settings? Would you tell me your settings?

I can fine tune, but I like to start from your recommended settings.
