Oversteer to my understanding is a traction bias to the front, meaning that the front tires have more grip than the rear at the moment of oversteer.

If you increase the rear pressure wouldn't this reduce the rear traction and magnify the oversteer tendencies?

Please note, we are assuming all other varables are not being adjusted otherwise things can get complicated fast!

I think he meant to say Correct UNDERSTEER. Otherwise I'm confused also!
