Much lower braking distances. Up to 21% more traction. It's pretty simple, really. You would have more capability to control your vehicle. All of the speculation and fluff in the world, and the fact that you are apparently a good driver, doesn't change this fact.
Agreed. If you don't change the way you drive, winter tires will always be better in winter road conditions.

If you become overconfident because you have winter tires, then aggravating circumstances complicate the assessment.
