Some Tricky and Innovative Prompts

Read below some content from my book Mastering the Art of Talking to AI: A Comprehensive Guide to Prompt Engineering

ChatGPT and Bard have opened up a world of possibilities with their ability to respond to prompts and generate creative text formats. Here are some examples of tricky, innovative prompts and prompt strategies that showcase their potential:

Tricky Prompts:

  • "Write a news article about an event that hasn't happened yet, making it appear factual and newsworthy." This challenges the model to understand and extrapolate from existing information to create plausible future scenarios.

  • "Compose a poem about silence, using only verbs." This pushes the model's linguistic creativity and ability to convey meaning without relying on nouns or adjectives.

  • "Start a story with the sentence 'Once upon a time, there was a...', but make it completely unexpected and surreal." This tests the model's ability to subvert expectations and create original narratives.

Innovative Prompt Strategies:

  • Chain Prompts: Break down a complex task into smaller, sequential prompts. For example, instead of asking for a complete song, ask for the melody, then the lyrics, and then the final arrangement. This allows for more control and refinement at each stage.

  • Contradictory Prompts: Deliberately give the model conflicting instructions to see how it handles ambiguity and reconciles opposing ideas. This can lead to surprising and creative results.

  • Emotional Prompts: Prime the model with an emotional state before the main prompt. For example, ask it to "write a poem filled with longing" or "describe a scene that evokes joy." This can influence the tone and sentiment of the generated text.

  • Interactive Prompts: Design prompts that allow for user input and feedback during the generation process. This creates a collaborative experience and can lead to more personalized and engaging outputs.

  • Hybrid Prompts: Combine text prompts with images, videos, or other sensory data to provide the model with richer context and inspiration. This can lead to more immersive and multi-modal outputs.
