Personally, I've always done everything wide when lifting. Always had a wide grip on bench and a wide stance on squats. It works for me, but the strongest raw lifters I've known have tended to be more narrow, which definitely goes along with what you guys are saying. I guess my point is that certain rules may work for most, but it won't be the case for everyone.
Very true, but it would still be what is natural, and you adjust from there.
