The info. you're choosing to leave out is the exact info. I'd need to be able to answer your question reasonably (IT DEPENDS!). Poker is very situationally dependent.... not much of it is black & white, or where you can put it in a box so to speak.
When I consider your question my first thoughts go to who's in the hand w me? reads on opponents, history with opponents, position, table image, blah blah blah.... and then if it's a tournament situation a bunch more stuff comes into play.
To me, poker isn't a game where you can just say, "Lead out with a 2/3 bet on the flop if you were the preflop aggressor and there's 3 or less players in the hand" etc. It is very situationally dependent.
