Deadlift: Conventional stance; mixed grip.

Squat: Narrow-ish stance; every rep breaking parallel.

My favorite is the Deadlift.

Squat is atg except for the ocasional boxed squats. Stance is quite wide, shoulder width atleast.

Deadlift - Heavy, sumo or conventional, mixed grip, w/o belt when repping, with belt for singles and doubles. Never used straps.

My favorite exercise is ATG squat, but I realized that my poundage will be limited, so I'm working on powerlifting depth squat.

I deadlift conventional< I can hook grip close to my max (473 hook v 496 mixed grip, recently I worked just under 400 on regular grip double overhand) I enjoy squatting more, but my numbers are better deadlifting.

Both are awesome, but my favorite is the deadlift. There's something primal about it.

I use a conventional stance when I pull, along with a narrow foot position, and a mixed grip.

When I squat, it's somewhat wider than shoulder width, but not like most of the multi-ply dudes who go ridiculously wide. The bar is low on my back and I go well below parallel, but not ATG.

Both the squat and deadlift are performed away from the mirror.
