I use my trackpad unless I'm playing some kind of game that requires/would be difficult to play without a mouse. I used to hate the idea of using a trackpad but it's much easier than dealing with a mouse while I'm on my bed/sofa, so I prefer it now.

This exactly tbh.

I used to use my wireless mouse a little more and it's nice when I'm doing research sometimes because there's a neat copy/paste trick in Terminal that I can't do with a trackpad but the trackpad is just more convenient when I'm on my laptop and I don't have to carry around a mouse or have it take up space on my table.

A trackpad is OK, but I prefer using a mouse. When I got my computer, I went out and bought a nice wireless one because it's so much more useful than using just the trackpad, especially when connecting things to my TV.

I only use a trackpad if there isn’t a mouse around. Mouses are so comfortable that I can’t imagine not using one.
