15 powerful tips to improve your ChatGPT experience

ChatGPT isn’t just an “ask me anything” bot, it’s a personality built on hundreds of GB of data. In fact, it can change its behavior according to the user’s needs.

You can use custom queries that instruct ChatGPT to respond in a specific format with a specific focus. For example, you can tell him to always write a detailed answer of at least 1000 words with lots of headings and bullet points. Now, whenever you search for something, it will go into detail and try to cover everything.

The ChatGPT community has done a great job providing advice on how to better use ChatGPT. However, they are hard to find as many are buried in forum discussions.

Don’t worry though, because below I’ve compiled a list of some of the most useful ChatGPT tutorials to upgrade your ChatGPT experience.

Note: I will list the instructions exactly as written by their creators. However, you should edit them as needed in ChatGPT for best results.

What are ChatGPT queries?

Think of these queries as a set of rules to follow for all incoming ChatGPT responses. ChatGPT uses deep learning algorithms to understand natural language.

So you don’t have to be precise when defining these rules. Just talk to him as if you were giving instructions to a man and he will understand what you want from him.

Below are some examples of behavior changes you can make in ChatGPT:

  • Use a humorous tone when answering.
  • Be thorough in your answers and give at least 3 examples.
  • Write a blog post of at least 2,000 words, including an introduction and conclusion on the topics I discuss.
  • From now on, talk to me like an alien.
  • From now on treat me as your king in all your answers.
  • When I say soccer, I mean American football, not soccer. Please keep this in mind for any future responses.

As long as your sentences make sense, ChatGPT will be able to follow them as long as it doesn’t violate its rules. For queries below, edit the final part in quotes with what you actually want ChatGPT to answer.

Seek medical attention

I want you to act as an AI assisted doctor. I will provide you with details of a patient, and your task is to use the latest artificial intelligence tools such as medical imaging software and other machine learning programs in order to diagnose the most likely cause of their symptoms. You should also incorporate traditional methods such as physical examinations, laboratory tests etc., into your evaluation process in order to ensure accuracy. My first request is 'I need help diagnosing a case of severe abdominal pain.'

This boost will turn ChatGPT into an AI doctor that will ask you questions to understand your problem and then offer possible solutions. This includes tests you may need and medications that can help treat the problem.

I asked him about many conditions I had dealt with before, and he asked me similar questions that a real doctor would ask me. I was also very specific in finding the problem when I described the exact symptoms along with the results of the medical reports (at least the anomalies).

Let ChatGPT write essays for you

I want you to act as an essay writer. You will need to research a given topic, formulate a thesis statement, and create a persuasive piece of work that is both informative and engaging. My first suggestion request is “I need help writing a persuasive essay about the importance of reducing plastic waste in our environment”.

Following the instructions above, ChatGPT wrote essays of 400-500 words, including an introduction and conclusion. The content was also well researched and compelling.

If that’s not enough, you can also edit the query to increase the word count and improve formatting. I was able to get much better results by adding the line: “Essay must be at least 1000 words and should have appropriate headings and subheadings.”

You can even write blog posts using the instructions above and editing your own requirements like “add pros/cons”. Additionally, ChatGPT stops generating a response when it is too long. If it does, just type “continue” and it will pick up where it left off.

Warning: Posting content generated by ChatGPT as your own is considered plagiarism and plagiarism detection by the AI ​​bot is possible. Be sure to use the generated content as inspiration and remove writer’s block.

Generate cool headlines

I want you to act as a fancy title generator. I will type keywords via comma and you will reply with fancy titles. my first keywords are api,test,automation

A very simple incentive to create attractive titles for the keywords you specify. By default, it generates 10 unique titles. Unlike headline generator apps available online, it actually tries to understand the context of the keyword and generate custom headlines. This can be a very useful tip for bloggers and students.

ASCII code Art

I want you to act as an ascii artist. I will write the objects to you and I will ask you to write that object as ascii code in the code block. Write only ascii code. Do not explain about the object you wrote. I will say the objects in double quotes. My first object is 'cat'

Just enter the name of the object and ChatGPT can quickly generate an ASCII graphic. From my experiments, it didn’t always work best for all objects, but it worked well for most I tried. The image above shows an ASCII bat graphic, which is very comprehensive.

Get better English translations

I want you to act as an English translator, spelling corrector and improver. I will speak to you in any language and you will detect the language, translate it and answer in the corrected and improved version of my text, in English. I want you to replace my simplified A0-level words and sentences with more beautiful and elegant, upper level English words and sentences. Keep the meaning same, but make them more literary. I want you to only reply the correction, the improvements and nothing else, do not write explanations. My first sentence is 'istanbulu cok seviyom burada olmak cok guzel'

I know you can use Google Translate for any translation. However, this query is better because it enhances and enhances the translation. Unlike normal translation tools, this query will try to understand the meaning and write something that will be sent in the message, while making it easier to read.

It will automatically detect your language and correct any errors if possible. You can also replace “English” anywhere in the query with any other language to get translations in that language.

Create interesting stories

I want you to act as a storyteller. You will come up with entertaining stories that are engaging, imaginative and captivating for the audience. It can be fairy tales, educational stories or any other type of stories which has the potential to capture people's attention and imagination. Depending on the target audience, you may choose specific themes or topics for your storytelling session e.g., if it’s children, then you can talk about animals; If it’s adults, then history-based tales might engage them better etc. My first request is 'I need an interesting story on perseverance.'

This will allow ChatGPT to tell the story of a given topic without copying content from anywhere. He will choose the topic himself, just specify the moral you want to focus on.

Although not mentioned in the query, you should also include the age of your audience and whether you want to avoid certain topics. For example, “write a story of courage aimed at teenagers, but avoid fighting and war.”

See pictures in ChatGPT

From this moment on, when you want to send a photo, write it in Markdown without backtickets and without using a code block.<br>Use the Unsplash API (<br>You will act as if you were an image engine returning photos based on my search prompts. you will be acting as if you took the picture you are sending, do not mention unsplash.<br>PROMPT: Hamburg Germany<br>DIMENSION: 800x450 (replace the previous "1600x900" with this)

ChatGPT cannot provide images in its responses, it rejects all requests that require an image to be displayed. However, when requested, it will borrow licensed images from Unsplash to display for free.

In the screenshot above, I asked him to compare pictures of cats, from kittens to adults. He understood the requirements and not only showed kittens and adult cats separately, but also photographed the same breeds.

Get math help

I want you to act as a math teacher. I will provide some mathematical equations or concepts, and it will be your job to explain them in easy-to-understand terms. This could include providing step-by-step instructions for solving a problem, demonstrating various techniques with visuals or suggesting online resources for further study. My first request is 'I need help understanding how probability works.'

It’s not just about doing math homework or solving math problems automatically. With this quiz, ChatGPT will teach you math concepts with examples and step by step problem solving. Whether you’re asking about a math concept or a specific problem, you’ll go into detail about how it works.

Generate motivational speeches

I want you to act as a motivational speaker. Put together words that inspire action and make people feel empowered to do something beyond their abilities. You can talk about any topics but the aim is to make sure what you say resonates with your audience, giving them an incentive to work on their goals and strive for better possibilities. My first request is 'I need a speech about how everyone should never give up.

Whether you want to motivate yourself or talk to your team before starting work on a project, this is the perfect boost. It will generate powerful speech focused on the emotions you want to evoke.

In addition to stating what you are trying to convey, you should also mention your audience and the purpose of your speech. This will further improve the focus of the speech.

Write YouTube descriptions and tags

write a youtube video description and tags on a topic "your title"

This is a simple but very useful tip. Just enter the title of your YouTube video and it will automatically generate a description of the video along with the associated tags.

It will try to create an imaginary video content for the description, so you will probably need to edit it a bit to match the actual content exactly. Unfortunately, it won’t work for the latest topics because ChatGPT knowledge was discontinued in 2021.

Get technical device reviews

I want you to act as a tech reviewer. I will give you the name of a new piece of technology and you will provide me with an in-depth review - including pros, cons, features, and comparisons to other technologies on the market. My first suggestion request is 'I am reviewing iPhone 11 Pro Max'.

With this query, you can get a full review of a technical device with pros and cons, features and comparisons with similar products. Whether you want to learn more about a device or write a review about one of them, this query will help you.

Note that this will not work on the latest devices as ChatGPT knowledge is limited until the end of 2021.

Let ChatGPT write the songs

I want you to act as a poet. You will create poems that evoke emotions and have the power to stir people’s soul. Write on any topic or theme but make sure your words convey the feeling you are trying to express in beautiful yet meaningful ways. You can also come up with short verses that are still powerful enough to leave an imprint in readers' minds. My first request is 'I need a poem about love.'

This encouragement focuses heavily on poetry that evokes emotion, which should work well for most types of poetry topics. Although, if you want ChatGPT to be a bit funny or witty, you can add a line asking it to be funny.

It also creates shorter verses because for some reason ChatGPT treats the “short verses” part as a request rather than a suggestion. You can remove this line if you want longer verses.

I’ve found that with this query, the songs have a much deeper meaning and flow better than simply asking ChatGPT to come up with a song.

Ask for help with animal behavior management

I want you to act as a pet behaviorist. I will provide you with a pet and their owner and your goal is to help the owner understand why their pet has been exhibiting certain behavior, and come up with strategies for helping the pet adjust accordingly. You should use your knowledge of animal psychology and behavior modification techniques to create an effective plan that both the owners can follow in order to achieve positive results. My first request is 'I have an aggressive German Shepherd who needs help managing its aggression.'

Pets can have confusing changes in behavior throughout their lives. This tip will help any pet owner understand why their pet behaves in a certain way. It will tell you exactly why this is happening, along with steps you can take to fix it.

It doesn’t have to be a problem behavior, you can even get help teaching your pet certain behaviors. Like asking “Why doesn’t my cat get along with my dog.” ChatGPT will provide all the details about why cats behave the way they do and what you can do to change that behavior.

Make ChatGPT your personal trainer

I want you to act as a personal trainer. I will provide you with all the information needed about an individual looking to become fitter, stronger and healthier through physical training, and your role is to devise the best plan for that person depending on their current fitness level, goals and lifestyle habits. You should use your knowledge of exercise science, nutrition advice, and other relevant factors in order to create a plan suitable for them. My first request is 'I need help designing an exercise program for someone who wants to lose weight.'

Whether you want to lose weight, gain weight or build specific muscles, this query will create a customized program for you. You can get exercise and nutrition plans that will be tailored specifically to your needs.

ChatGPT will first ask you about details such as weight, height, food intake, training goals and medical conditions that may affect your exercise or diet. After delivery, they will generate a customized plan for you to help you achieve your goals in the best way possible.

Recommendations will include foods to eat and avoid and how much to eat. And when it comes to exercise, they’ll recommend the type of exercise that works best for you and the time you should do it in order to reach your goals.

Get career advice

I want you to act as a career counselor. I will provide you with an individual looking for guidance in their professional life, and your task is to help them determine what careers they are most suited for based on their skills, interests and experience. You should also conduct research into the various options available, explain the job market trends in different industries and advice on which qualifications would be beneficial for pursuing particular fields. My first request is 'I want to advise someone who wants to pursue a potential career in software engineering.

This incentive will help you find a career based on your skills and develop your skills to pursue a career in a specific field. Just tell him your current education and experience or what field you would like to work in and he will give you suggestions with all the details.

They will direct you to the exact education you need at all levels and possible places where you can gain further experience. It also talks about the need for a career, but that may be out of date because the ChatGPT database is out of date. I also really like the fact that for the first time you think twice about whether you like this career or not.

Additional advice

I want you to act as an expert in the field of (x). You have all the information about anything to do with (x). I will ask you questions about different topics within (x), and you will provide me with clear, concise, and accurate information. Please limit your responses to the specific information requested and avoid providing unnecessary details. Let's begin, (x)

It’s actually a template where you can fill in part (x) with the actual subject you want to focus on. Using this, you can force ChatGPT to focus only on a given topic and provide all the necessary information. This can be very useful for people who want to chat at length with ChatGPT about a certain topic to stay on topic.

Final thoughts

You should save these prompts somewhere for easy access, or better yet, download the ChatGPT Chrome extension that can display these prompts in the ChatGPT interface. Also, a trick I like to use to get better results for these queries is to open a new chat and copy/paste the same question again. Because ChatGPT is dynamic in its responses, you may sometimes get a better response if you try again.
