am I old school for not giving eye autofocus a chance?

Until recently I did not realize that Z6 has eye autofocus.  I came across a youtube video where the guy was comparing  Z6 eye auto-focus with fuji xt4, that's when it occurred to me that Z6 indeed has eye autofocus.

I did my own comparison after getting xt4 and quickly returned back to my old way of focusing. The eye autofocus was bouncing all over the place especially on fuji. I hated it. It is almost as if the camera couldn't make up its mind on which eye to focus and sometimes it will focus on something behind.

I shoot with the back button auto-focus in continuous auto-focus for everything and move the focus point to my desired location.

I hope I'm not missing out. Not sure if it is a case of trying to teach an old dog new tricks on my part.
