In short it feels like a tight diff in fast sweepers where you need the on throttle steering, and feels like a loose diff rolling through hairpins and powering out of them.
When I was testing different oils I found that when I went too heavy I'd notice it first in the high speed corners. The car would spin mid corner on throttle, it was still very drivable out of the tighter bends though.
With the ball diff often you'd wish for a tighter diff in fast corners, but you'd already have problems powering out of hairpins.
