Can't get used to anything but spot AF

I keep trying the other AF modes on my GH1 and EPL2 or my P&S cameras, but always come back to Spot AF. Seems I like to choose what to focus on and can't think of when I would want the camera to choose the focus point. I cannot think of what circumstance where I want the camera to use the 23, unless I am snapping a photo remotely and cannot focus and frame. Maybe it's my roots in manual focusing my first cameras back in the early 1970's. I don't have one, but I take it that one of the "features" of a touchscreen lcd is that you can touch the screen to focus the camera where you want, again, how is this better than half press focus, frame and shoot? Please enlighten me.
