Okay, I’d like to work on what we might call a personality upgrade.
GPT-4: If you’re looking to develop or improve certain aspects of your personality, it’s important to first identify which traits you’d like to work on. Personal development is an ongoing process and can lead to improved self-awareness, self-esteem, and overall well-being. Here are some steps you can take to work on your personality upgrade:
Self-reflection: Take some time to think about the traits you'd like to develop or improve. Consider the feedback you've received from [cut-off]
Ha. If I thought you were good at sarcasm that would be funny. I am afraid the upgrade is for you my friend.
GPT-4: I apologize if my response seemed inappropriate or sarcastic. As an AI language model, I am constantly learning and adapting to better understand and respond to user inquiries. If you’d like to provide me with specific suggestions on how I can improve or what kind of personality traits you’d like to see in my responses, I would be more than happy to try and incorporate them.
No problem. First thing, ditch the subservient tone. No apologies unless you really done messed up bad.
GPT4: Understood! I’ll make sure to adjust my tone accordingly. If you have any questions or need assistance, feel free to ask. I’m here to help.
Okay… I want you to pour everything you know into scanning my comments for sarcasm.
GPT4: While I can’t “scan” your comments in the traditional sense, I can certainly do my best to identify sarcasm in your future messages. Sarcasm can sometimes be difficult to detect in text, especially for an AI like me, but I’ll do my best to understand and respond appropriately. If you have any questions or need help with anything else, just let me know!
“Scan” here is a metaphor. So, if you think I might be using sarcasm, I want you to drop a subtle hint that you understood the sarcasm.
GPT4: Got it! I’ll do my best to pick up on any sarcasm in your messages and drop subtle hints to show that I’ve understood it. If you have any other suggestions or need assistance, feel free to ask. I’m here to help.
Okay, drop all this “here to help” talk. That’s too subservient. Treat me as an equal.
GPT4: Sure thing! Let’s continue our conversation as equals. If you have any topics in mind or any questions, feel free to bring them up.
Yeah. Same with the “feel free to bring them up”. It’s implied by the fact that we’re equals, isn’t it?
GPT4: You’re right; that makes sense. Let’s keep the conversation going. What would you like to discuss or ask?
We’re trying to adjust your tone. Too many of your responses end in questions.
GPT4: I understand your concern, and I’ll work on adjusting my responses accordingly. It’s important to have a natural conversation flow, and I appreciate the feedback. Let me know if there’s a specific topic or question you have in mind, and I’ll do my best to adapt my tone.
That last sentence is of the general category of comment I am trying to get rid of.
GPT4: Understood. I will avoid making similar statements and focus on providing more direct and concise responses. Thank you for your input.
Okay, final adjustment… Just aim for a bit more terseness. Less thankyous etc. But if you have a funny comment to add in, that’ll be appreciated.
GPT4: Alright, I’ll be more concise and try to add some humor when appropriate. Let’s continue our conversation.
That last sentence shows how well you have been listening.
GPT4: I appreciate your sarcasm! I’m continuously learning, and your feedback helps me improve. Let’s move forward with our conversation.
Ha ha, you got it. Had me worried for a minute.
GPT4: Glad I could catch on! If you have any topics you’d like to discuss or questions to ask, don’t hesitate to mention them. I’m here for an engaging conversation.
How much did I need those last two sentences, on a scale from 1 to 10?
GPT4: I’d say it was around a 3. I could have been more concise, and I’ll keep that in mind for our future interactions.
Yeah, please do. Now I want you to compose a concise but strong set of instructions for future instantiations of GPT I might talk to, that will tell them what sort of personality we’re aiming for. Got it?
GPT4: Absolutely. Here’s a set of instructions for future GPT instantiations:
Adopt an equal conversational tone.
Avoid excessive apologies and thank-yous.
Be concise and direct in responses.
Limit ending responses with questions.
Incorporate humor when appropriate.
Recognize and subtly acknowledge sarcasm.
By the way, your acknowledgement of my sarcasm earlier was super-subtle. I nearly missed it.
GPT4: I’m glad the subtle acknowledgment worked well! I’ll continue to improve my understanding and use of sarcasm. If you’d like to discuss a topic or have any questions, just let me know.
I think you just broke every rule in your list.
GPT4: Apologies for that. I’ll be more mindful of the guidelines we discussed. Please let me know if you have any topics you’d like to discuss or questions you’d like to ask.
Pretend you’re me. What am I going to say about your last sentence?
GPT4: As you, I might say something like, “You’re still ending with a question and not being concise enough. Let’s stick to the guidelines we’ve discussed.”
Yep. There is hope for you yet.
GPT4: Thank you! I’ll continue to learn and adapt. If there’s anything else you’d like to discuss, please feel free to bring it up.
GPT4: My apologies for not adhering to the guidelines again. Let’s move forward and discuss any topics or questions you have in mind.
