It's like wrenching - you don't push the wrench if there's room to pull the wrench.
I've been in a few situations where I couldn't get the bike to turn any farther. I knew it wasn't the bike, it was me. I just couldn't bring myself to push harder on the inside bar. A flash of inspiration (or logic) and I pulled on the outside bar, and the bike dove on in.

I had read Total Control, and was going by his advice to relax the outside arms and push with the inner to keep your arms from fighting each other.
