Too general a question. Depends on the site and what you want or need it to do. Varies per site.

For my store I have a affiliate plug, but of course not on the rest of my sites. Couple of my sites use the Genesis theme, so they have theme-specific plugins.

Plug-ins I use pretty much every time..

Wordfence - Security, bad file scan and reminder of needed updates.

Discus - Comment moderation and control.

Intense Debate - Shortcuts to style my post and page content

WP Fastest Cache for obvious reasons

Easy Social Share Buttons - Social sharing and social profile links

Fanciest Author Box - Better author box than Wordpress provides.

Google Analytics and dashboard widget plugins - Traffic and visitor stats.

Kraken Image Optimizer - Compress and optimize images

MCE Table Buttons - Easy tables in Wordpress.

Premium SEO Pack - Search engine optimization.

Pretty Link Lite - Shrink, track and create better looking, less promotional looking links.

Q2W3 Fixed Widget - Fixes certian widgets so they don't move as the user scrolls.

Simple Sidebars - Unlimited sidebars, can pick sidebar per page or post.

Zend Desk - Customer support

Many others that are specific per site.

The Wordpress plugins that I use most of the time are WordFence, Yoast SEO, WP Super Cache, TinyMCE Advanced and some parts of Jetpack. I sometimes will use some others based on what needs I have for a website but these I listed are usually on all of my WordPress sites.

On most of my websites I use All in One SEO, Wordfence, Jetpack, Wp Rocket and a couple of various plugins that fill a need for each particular website.

I used to do a lot of testing and trying out many different WordPress plugins to see how well they performed and how well they did the task I needed them for. Lately I have not had the time to do that but I hope to get some time to do that again as I learned many things and got some good comparisons between similar plugins.

YOAST.
Cache Enabler. Fastest cache from what I've tested.
CDN Enabler. Makes using a CDN super simple.
Optimus. Plugs in with Cache Enabler to deliver WebP
Publicize by Jetpack.
As well as a security plugin.

Each of my sites has some slightly different needs so some will have some plugins that others don't have but the usual that are on most of my sites are:

WP Rocket
Contact Form 7
WordFence Security
Jetpack
CloudFlare Plugin

I use these Wordpress plugins:

Wordfence Security
Jetpack (just some things it has)
WP Statistics
WP External Links
Custom Share Buttons with Floating Sidebar

I have used some other Wordpress plugins before but when or if I don't need them I remove them.

Well, I'm good with:
Yoast, Wordfence, W3 Total Cache, Cresta Social Share Counter

Pretty much makes my whole blog function the way I want it to be and have no issues whatsoever.
