From what I've researched, your habits fall in line with the vast majority of web users. They tend to trust organic search results much better and click on those far more than the PPC listings. Most SEO experts say that they can achieve better results and save the client more money over the long term with organic SEO. The other downside to PPC is click fraud, which some industry analysts claim may be as high as 80%. The disadvange to organic is that it takes a good 3-6 months before you begin to see results, and the initial investment is much higher.
I don't know if it's a complete waste of time, but my impression is that organic SEO's advantages outweight PPC's. If someone has a different opinion, I'd certainly like to hear another perspective.
