If i just learned the recipe, I kind of follow everything but once I master it, I begin to add some stuff and experiment. Or want to make it a better dish.j

Sometimes i follow a recipe strictly and sometimes i do experiment and most of the time i blend both of them and turn out isnt really bad.

Definitely a person who mixes both, I find I follow the recipe if I am baking more than cooking. Though I still change the recipe to fit my needs.

As a baker, I would tell you baking recipes are meant to be followed. The chemical reactions and balance of the ingredients are what makes your final product. If you don't know what you are doing you might end up with a mess. But if you know what you are doing its ok to experiment. If it's just regular food, experiment ahead!
This! If it's not baking, I'll be a little creative. But when it comes to baking, I'm careful and only do what the recipe says.

If the meal has clear instructions, I simply follow them! If it doesn't taste good, I simply try a new recipe :D
