For those prompts that ask for personal experiences..or "what do u thinks", is it still good/wise to use historical or literary examples or should I go with just personal examples? thx~

Have you been studying out of Kaplan? (I'm assuming you're talking about SATII writing) Usually the real writing test prompts give some general theory/statement and ask you if you agree or disagree.

E.g. the one I got for the January '04 test was something like "nothing perfect is interesting, people are fascinated by flaws"

It depends on the prompt. Fill-in-the-blank topics usually ask specifically about one of your experiences, therefore you should keep personal (intro - thesis, body - story, conclusion - what you learned. The Single-Statement essay usually asks for just 1 example, whereas with the Double-Statement essay you can come up with as many examples as you can fit in.
