I chose low bar/conventional, but I may be more of a mid bar placement. Up too high and it doesn't feel right. So I'm lowish bar but with a narrower stance. All kinds of conventional on deadlifts.

Odd one. I squat mid bar really with a wide stance, not sumo but wide. Deadlift with a very narrow stance conventional style.

Exactly that.

I used to do high bar squats, but in the end, "low bar" (kinda) turned out to be better for me (far as I can tell, so far).

Conventional deadlifts only. Tried sumo once, and hated it.
