Incorrect turns

wide = you keep left side of the lane and ended up on left side of the lane when you are turning right.. OR you keep right side of the lane and ended up on ride side of the lane while turning left. 

sharp = you keep left side of the lane and ended up on left side of the lane when you are turning left.. OR you keep right side of the lane and ended up on ride side of the lane while turning right.

both will consist of a sharp turn of very close to 90 degree when you turn left or right.. (this is wrong cuz in real road you will fall if you are traveling at a higher speed)

 

Correct turns

no matter left or right side turning. you will ended up centre of the lane you are turning towards.. and you will turn like a curve.. as close to 40-45degree 

Just remember to check for car/bike/road clearance of the road/lane you are turning to..

Normal turn -  The curve of wheel track is along with the middle of lane.

Wide turn -  The curve of wheel track will be at the lef side of normal turn for right turn,   right side of normal turn for left turn

Sharp turn - The curve of wheel track will be at the righ side of normal turn for right turn,   left side of normal turn for left turn

In terms of cornering technique,  there is no incorrect or correct.   What correct / incorrect is the ’occasion‘ of making a turn, in other words,  when and how make a turn are the matter

Assuming no changes for turning speed and turning angle,   make turn at an earlier timing will lead to sharp turn, make turn at a  later timing will lead to wide turn.

Come back to your case, if wanted to avoid so called 'mistake', one of easy approaches is to start making the turn a little bit earlier or later and keep other riding styles as usual.
