About like you--matrix usually, and spot for high contrast situations where I need a certain something in the frame in perfect exposure. Never center weighted--I have used center weighted metering in cameras for 40 years--because it was all I had--what there was in most SLR's I owned.
The 60/40 center weighting in my FM was OK in most situations, but I used a hand-held spot meter much of the time, or took an overall reading on the subject and compensated mentally for what I actually wanted exposed perfectly. Then I had to hope that when Costco or somebody developed my negatives, they would come out the way I wanted them.
