Help me stop obsessing over TICK charts!

I am scalper obsessing over whether to use TIME, TICK or VOLUME bases candles. I understand the benefits of all three but what I don't understand is why so many people use seemingly random TICK settings. At least in a TIME chart there are just a few common time frames like 1M, 5M, 15M etc.

Could someone please give their insight as to wether or not TICK charts are even necessary?
