I generally keep hitting until I get 21. I'm not an excellent gambler.

I was taught to hit sixteen and stand seventeen.

It depends. I count cards to an extent (sue me) and if I feel it's safe enough, I'll hit.

you don't hit at all in poker. Blackjack maybe...

Oh CheeseKing.
I know you know what you meant by this.

I was taught to hit on 17, stand on 18.

[insert tasteless joke about "hitting on 17"]

I would always stand on 17.

It depends on what the one card of the other players are. If someone has an ace showing, for instance, I'm probably hitting. A lot off ten and face cards, I'd be torn and may or may not hit. If mostly everyone else has 9 or less (but not an Ace), I'll stand.

Depends on the table, but usually not. If the dealer has to hit on a soft 17, I'll stick.

There are simple tables you can use do determine what gives you the best odds to do depending on what hand you and the dealer have. Even so the odds always favor the house, and despite what anyone says, alot of casinos cheat on the odds.
