"Seeing things" ?

Hello Tchad,
sorry for the utterly non-descriptive subject title, but I couldn't find anything else; anyways, I'm wondering how important "seeing" things are when you work; by that I mean, how much do you rely on VU meters, peak meters, phase scopes, spectrographs etc.? Do you work with a 'system' as to where on the VU meters you park your kicks, snares, guitars, vocals?
Thank you for taking the time. Doug

This was answered the other day but it didn't seem to get posted.

I use meters very generally to watch levels. Peak, VU, I don't really care. If I'm in a studio that has fancy stuff I'll take a look. But I never make a decision based on meters.
