Tips for better results in ChatGPT

With ChatGPT it is similar to Google search. You can quickly find what you are looking for there, but you can also waste a lot of time because you simply cannot find the right answer. If you ask a politician a general question, he/she will immediately have a general answer ready from the building block catalogue. You can settle for that for now, or you’ll have to keep digging. And so it is with ChatGPT. So ask your questions as precisely as possible in order to rule out useless answers as far as possible from the outset.

Here are some tips you can use with virtually any type of AI to get better results.

Our tips for better answers with ChatGPT

Our tips for better answers with ChatGPT

#1 Use precise keywords

Make sure the keywords you use to search ChatGPT are accurate and specific. For example, if you’re looking for information about a specific movie, include the movie’s title and director for better results.

Here are some examples of tags that can be used in ChatGPT:

  • Weather – to get information about weather conditions
  • News – to find out the latest news and events
  • Sports – to stay informed about sports results and events
  • Entertainment – to get recommendations for movies, music, TV shows, etc
  • Travel – to get information about travel destinations and places of interest
  • Education – to get information about educational institutions and learning resources
  • Technology – to get information about technologies and gadgets
  • Health – to receive information about health issues and conditions
  • Finance – to get information about financial markets and instruments
  • Food and Drink – to get recommendations for restaurants, recipes and groceries.

These tags can be used to signal ChatGPT what type of information you are looking for and help it provide relevant answers.

#2 Use plain language

Although ChatGPT understands complex language, it’s always best to use simple language, especially when you’re looking for a concise answer to a question. So avoid unnecessarily complex sentence structures and long words.

Here is an example of simple language:

Complicated: The climatic conditions of this region are extremely adverse and require a large number of adaptations in relation to the agricultural methods used here.

Easy: It is difficult to grow here because the weather is difficult. Farmers must use special methods to protect their crops.

With this example, simple language shows how complicated sentences can be expressed in a simpler way, replacing long words and phrases with shorter and easier-to-understand words. This can help make the information accessible and understandable to a wider audience.

#3 Use questions

When you ask a question, give ChatGPT a clear indication of what you are looking for. Make sure your question is as specific as possible. A good way to frame a question is to ask a question with a specific goal. For example, “How do I clear my Facebook search history?” If you work with punctuation, the AI understands your request better and knows that you asked a question.

#4 Bypass the filter feature

ChatGPT has been provided with a number of filters, for example not to answer swear words or legally inadmissible questions. Recently there was the option to bypass the filters by entering “DAN” for “do anything now“. You have to try whether this is still the case. Because OpenAI is actually trying to close such backdoors. However, there are constantly new attempts by the community to circumvent the filter functions of ChatGPT. Everyone has to decide for themselves whether it’s worth it.

#5 Use the right search operators

ChatGPT supports various search operators that can help you get more specific results. For example, the quotation mark (” “) symbol allows you to search for a specific phrase. The minus sign (-) can be used to exclude certain words, while the plus sign (+) can be used to include certain words. This is similar to the Google search where you will also get better search results if you work with the right operators.

#6 Use synonyms

If you are not sure which keywords to use for your search, you can also try synonyms. ChatGPT is able to recognize synonyms and provide appropriate answers. An example of a synonym would be the word “great“, which can also be replaced with the synonym “excellent“. This means that both words have a similar meaning and can be interchanged in certain contexts without changing the meaning of the sentences.

#7 Ask follow-up questions

If you got an answer to your question but need more information, just ask a follow-up question. ChatGPT is designed to keep a continuous conversation and help you find answers. Examples of follow-up questions would be:

  • You ask: “What’s the weather like today?”
    ChatGPT replies: “It’s sunny and warm.”
    A possible follow-up question could be: “What is the temperature?
  • You ask, “What is the definition of photosynthesis?”
    ChatGPT replies: “Photosynthesis is the process by which green plants convert light energy into chemical energy.”
    A possible follow-up question could be: “Can you provide more details on this process?”
  • You ask: “Who was the first President of the United States?”
    ChatGPT replies: “George Washington was the first President of the United States.”
    A possible follow-up question could be: “When was he elected and how long was he in office?”

Similar to the Google Assistant, ChatGPT also remembers what you asked last and tries to put the follow-up question in a logical context if this is possible. With Amazon Alexa, you can completely forget about that!

#8 Use context

When you ask a question, you can also provide contextual information that can help ChatGPT better understand the question. For example, you can mention why you are asking this question or what information you already have. This allows ChatGPT to respond more specifically to your needs. An example conversation would be:

User: “I need help finding a restaurant nearby.”
ChatGPT: “Sure, what part of town are you looking for a restaurant in?”
User: “I’m in Hamburg, in the Bergedorf district.”
ChatGPT: “Okay, are there certain types of restaurants that you prefer?”
User: “I’m looking for an Italian restaurant.”
ChatGPT: “I see. Would you like an upscale Italian restaurant or a more relaxed one?”
User: “I think I’m looking for a more relaxed Italian restaurant.”
ChatGPT: “Okay, how about Trattoria Toscana on Sonnenallee? They have a great selection of Italian dishes and a cozy atmosphere.”

This example shows that ChatGPT requests context information to refine the search result. But it would be better if you asked “I’m looking for a cozy Italian restaurant in Hamburg Bergedorf“. The more context information you provide, the fewer questions you have to answer in order to get a useful result faster.
