Question about how many AF points you use

I have always just used the center AF point on most of my cameras over the years. I now have the EM5-III, which has the 121 phase detection AF points (which my previous M4/3 cameras didn't).

So the question is: When do you feel it is better/advisable to use all the AF points? Or do you stick with either just the center point or a small grouping? I always saw the center 9 and 25 grouping (on my Pen-F) and now the EM5 has a 5 grouping - center point and the ones immediately above, below and to either side.

Thanks,

Steve
