I use my ears. Scales are alright for starting points, but eventually you can just go by what you hear and break out of boxes.

The chord progression you're playing over determines your choice of scale to a certain degree, the rest is personal preference.

to a certain degree if the main of the song is based around a certain key then that determines the key of your scale usually :/
but then theres many scales within that to choose from so its preference

You don't have to conciously use a scale. In fact, it's better not to. The minor pentatonic is useful for beginners, though.

Actually, I think it's best to know your scales so that when you talk to people about your music, you'll sound like you know what your doing. That means the pentatonic and modes like the Iodian, Dorian ect...I really do not know any of these well yet... I know the part of the pentatonic that starts on five though! The scale you use really makes a difference in what you play. If you want though, you can just play around and find something that sounds good, but learning scales makes it easier to know what will and won't work. After learning scales you will feel better about your playing...at least I'm sure that's where a lot of my problems lie.
