How to write better prompts in ChatGPT

Tuesday, April 11th, 2023

Using ChatGPT for Search Engines (browser extension), not only do I have access to search results via Google (in my regular search), I can also view ChatGPT results in the same window. Pretty neat! 🙂

Answer from ChatGPT

Writing better prompts in ChatGPT can help generate more accurate and relevant responses. Here are some tips for writing effective prompts:

  1. Be clear and specific: Your prompts should clearly and specifically convey the information you want to receive in the response. Avoid using ambiguous or vague language.
  2. Use complete sentences: Write your prompts in complete sentences, just like you would if you were asking a question to a human. This will help ensure that the generated response makes sense.
  3. Provide context: If the prompt is related to a specific topic or situation, provide enough context to help ChatGPT understand the question better. This can include relevant background information, related events or circumstances, and any relevant details that may help narrow down the scope of the response.
  4. Avoid leading questions: Try to avoid asking leading questions that suggest a particular answer. This can bias the response and limit the range of possible answers that ChatGPT generates.
  5. Use appropriate tone and language: The tone and language used in the prompt should match the intended audience and context. If the prompt is intended for a formal setting, use formal language and tone. If the prompt is intended for a casual setting, use more informal language and tone.
  6. Ask open-ended questions: Ask open-ended questions that allow for a range of possible responses. This can help generate more creative and varied responses from ChatGPT.

By following these tips, you can write better prompts that help generate more accurate and relevant responses from ChatGPT.
