For me, a spotter causes me to press less, because I know I have someone to catch my fail. If you want to see me crush weight on bench, watch when I have no one to rely on, because I know there's no way out but me.
This is true. Dangerous but definitely true. I rarely use a spotter and there have been times where I've found an extra 1 or 2% due to sheer self-preservation.
