Ep#40_What You Don't Know About ChatGPT
Rose: Hey, it's Rose and welcome to the solo episode on the Sensitive CEO show. And today I am talking about ChatGPT. Now if you haven't heard of ChatGPT, you'll learn lots of new things, and even if you have heard of it and if you've been using it, then I hope that I can share some new knowledge with you today.
Now I've been using ChatGPT for over three months now, and I've picked up some pretty interesting tips that I don't believe many people know about, which is why I wanted to share it today. And I'm also in the middle of creating a workshop for my students in the business school, the HSP Business School next week.
So, while I was preparing, I thought, well, why not make this into a bit of a solo episode as well so that I can share this knowledge with a wider audience? So, first of all, what is ChatGPT? So it's an advanced language model, which was developed by OpenAI, and it belongs to the GPT Family of models.
And what GPT stands for, if you're interested, is generative pre-trained transformer. And these models are designed to understand and generate human-like text based on the context provided to them. And ChatGPT itself has been trained on a diverse range of internet text sources, which includes books, articles, websites, and more.
And it leverages deep learning techniques to generate coherent and contextually relevant responses to user queries. Now the primary purpose of ChatGPTis to provide conversational assistance, to answer questions, to engage in discussions, offer explanations, and to provide information on many, many topics.
And it can be used for so many different applications, such as customer support. You've probably seen when you are on a website and you are asking for support. You've probably seen these AI bots that reply to you. it can be used for content generation, which is mainly what I'm gonna be talking about today.
It's great for translation, language translation and also for coding websites. If you're a website coder, you can actually code complete websites with it. You can use it to help spot any anomalies in your code or any problems that you're having with code that you're writing. Now it's free to access and it's actually like having your own little AI buddy on hand anytime you need to generate new ideas or create momentum as you tackle otherwise boring or draining tasks.
And it's free to use because the way that you engage with the tool means that it's. Analyzed, everything you put into it is analyzed and used to inform future learning, and your data's very valuable and that's why the tool is free at the moment. So you are providing data and behavioral analysis, and this is making the tool more and more valuable.
Now the free version is quite limited in that you can only access it during low demand periods, but you can upgrade to a premium monthly subscription for $20 a month. And when I mentioned dollars, I'm talking in US dollars. Now what's currently not very well known is that you can easily set up an open AI account yourself.
You can do this directly without going to ChatGPT itself. And this means that you have more control over your data because you can request to exclude your account from future learning. Plus you are not tied into any monthly costs. So basically you get the AI generation at its cost price on a pay as you go basis.
Now to sign up, I'll pop this in the show notes, but to sign up, just go to open ai.com and you need to add, it's really simple to sign up, you'll need to add a payment method, but what's great is that you can actually set your monthly usage limits and the proof limit is currently $120 a month, but you can set it much lower.
There's two limits. There's a hard limit and a soft limit, and I have my hard limit set to $20 and my soft limit to $15. So when it gets to $15, I'll get an email notification and then at $20, any requests that I make will be rejected and I won't be able to use it until the next month ticks over. And I'm happy to say this actually hasn't even happened to me yet, and I signed up in February, 2023, and I've used it so, so much.
I've asked a ton of questions from generating product ideas to email copy sales page copy, affiliate assets, social posts. I've done SEO research, which is search engine optimization. I've generated blog posts. I've even used it to ask, for my podcast interviews when I'm interviewing guests to ask some interview question ideas, which is super helpful.
I've used it for niche ideas and lots of random, random questions from time to time, and if I'm stuck or I just need some inspiration, I'll just open up the chat, prompt and I'll ask away. And just to give you an idea of what all of this has cost me in the last three months is just over $14. So I think opening up for an open AI account itself is definitely worth it.
If you think you're gonna use it, even if you're not, it's still worth it because you'd only pay for what you use. Now ChatGPTs outputs are created from scratch. They're not copied from anywhere and. This means that the response is a hundred percent unique. Now, there will be, you'll notice things that might look similar to something else that you've read on the internet, but it's totally, totally unique and you can run things through plagiarism, which is something that I've done because it's important to me that there's no plagiarism involved in anything that I put out there.
And you can, you can check plagiarism through various websites. I'll pop a couple in the show notes. There are some websites where you can go to check if what you are writing sounds like it's totally AI generated or human generated. And that might be useful if you are worried about sounding like a robot, but, When you are asking a question, say if you're wanting it to write a blog post for you, what I suggest is that you read it and make changes.
Like anything that I've actually generated, I'd say I've maybe used 70 to 80% for the ideas, but I've, the rest of it has been my own, but it's a great place to start. no. It's capable of answering almost any question that you might have for it. A really, simple example, you could say, what's the capital of Peru?
And it might just feed back Lima, but it might feed back the elevation where it sits in South America, other things like that. Now, if you don't like a response or an answer, you can regenerate it and you can do things. You can give it a thumbs up or a thumbs down. So in essence, your training ChatGPT, into how you like the responses to be.
You can also ask it to speak in a certain tone or you can ask it to act as a certain person. So you could say, and I'm gonna give some examples a bit later on, but you could say, I am, you could say to it, you are a copywriting expert. Please write blah, blah, blah. Like a sales page copy or something.
So there's, so many things you can do with it. if you ask a question and you realize you didn't word it very well, you can go back and edit that question rather than retype it. And that will save previous iterations along with the responses, and you'll always be able to go back to all the previous questions that you've asked it and all those responses, it does save all of them. When you have an account, even if you've just got a free account as well, you can do things like, you can stop generating a response if you don't like where it's going, and this will save you tokens, and that's useful if you are on the paid option.
And as of this recording of this podcast episode, chat, g p t is gathering information from before September, 2021. Although apparently I have heard that there have been some anomalies, you should always validate the answers that you are given. It's been known to make mistakes.
And an example I wanna share, one of the first things I asked at many months ago was, who founded the H S P Business School? And much to my surprise, it came back with somebody else's name and I, I had to laugh. I thought it was quite funny. But I looked up this person and she does work with highly sensitive people as well, and she does have a, business coaching program, but she didn't found the HSP business school, so I just said to ChatGPT actually no.
Rose Cox founded the HSP Business School, and I think the response was, oh, I'm so sorry. You are right. Rose Cox did found the HSP business school. And that kind of leads me to the next point, which is the more you work with it, the more you train it and it continues conversations indefinitely, and it makes references to things that you might have asked it weeks ago or even months ago.
It bases its responses on that, which is kind of cool. Really. And another example I wanna give, I didn't actually do this, but if I was to ask ChatGPT to come up with five suggestions for a name of a module within my program, the HSP Business School that's based around strategic thinking, long-term vision, mission and goals.
And add that I would like it to be in alliteration. And then it will come up with these five responses. And I actually did type this in because I was quite curious and what it gave back to me was, the first one was Strategic Mastermind. And that made me curious because that's not an alliteration, but bear with me.
number two was Visionary Voyage number three was Mission Manifesto. Number four was Goal Getters guide. Number five was thinking tomorrow's tactics. Now, I didn't particularly like any of these. oh, I didn't mind visionary voyage, but I didn't really like the rest of 'em, so I asked it to regenerate, and so then it came back with Visionary Ventures, strategic Synapse.
Mission Mastery Gogetter Long-term logic. So I thought these were interesting, and as it actually said to me, you can mix and match or ask a more defined question, and you can also edit your question until you're happy with the name. Now you could say, I don't need an alliteration, or I'd like an alliteration beginning with.
Say P or something. and then you get to tell it what rules you want. So as an example, if I'd chosen the module name, visionary Voyage, I could then say to it the name of module two within the HSP Business School is Visionary Voyage. Please remember this going forward. And it will. So in the future you might say, type me a blog post, or write me a blog post around the module two of the HSP Business school.
Just as an example. And as an aside, I actually did call it the Foresight Formula because I didn't know about ChatGPT last year when I developed this program. So, As I mentioned, if you are dealing with factual information, never ever trust the output of a large language model. You must always verify it.
And a really good example was Google's fumble when they were talking about their AI Bard, B A R D. And where it actually got a fact about a telescope wrong. And because this got called out, Google ended up losing almost 200 billion of market value. So mistakes can be very, very expensive. So beware anything factual, it's definitely worth checking.
So as I promised, I wanted to share some basic, prompts and something I didn't mention ChatGPT or the whole AI model is,when someone can actually be trained in how to ask it questions. And the title of this is called a Prompt Engineer. And I read somewhere that Google is actually advertising for prompt engineers for $350,000 a year. So it's, it's actually a job. So it's a role that you can really hone your skills on and if you know what to ask it, I think the results can be amazing. So it just goes to show some people may be worried about, Losing different jobs or something, but I believe that this won't happen.
I believe that things like AI actually creates jobs as well, so it, yeah, might get rid of some jobs, but it will create more jobs in the long run. So some prompts that I want to share, the, I don't think these would earn me $350,000 a year, but the, these are ones that I'm using and and I'm honing my skills as I go.
I learn as I go. So one example could be, If I want to respond to an email that someone has sent me, I could say, right into ChatGPT, respond to the following email in a tone that is professional and authoritative. And then in quotes, how can I learn more about the HSP trait? So that's an example of writing emails an example if you wanna send a really basic text message or d message in a friendly way, you can just say, write a message in a friendly casual tone to my friend to ask if they want to meet for coffee on Monday. Mention in a candid way that she can't bring her dog. Now that's a silly example. I don't know why I chose that.
But, now you can also write longer works, but the ChatGPT interface actually has a maximum token limit, and token are the characters. If you didn't know what that was, so if. It will actually stop generating. And if it does stop generating mid prompt, you can just type something like continue or continue from.
And then just write in the last few words of the last sentence. So if you wanna write a blog post, here's a way that you could word it. You are an s e o copywriting expert. Write a 500 word blog post about how to market your business in an HSP friendly way. Use the SEO key phrase, hsp-friendly marketing.
Now as Im. As I'm actually recording this, I'm thinking some of these prompts might be useful to you, so I'm gonna create a little resource and, I dunno the name of it yet cause I haven't created it. But I'll pop a link in the show notes so you can, grab these prompts if they're helpful to you.
Obviously you'd change the wording to make it suitable for you. So keep an eye up for that in the show notes. Now you can also write books with ChatGPT, but rather than it actually writing a book, you can write the book with ChatGPT, giving it instructions as you go along a chapter at a time. And you can get it to write an outline.
So an example could be a. I'm writing a book about the power of hypnosis. I'm an advanced, rapid transformational therapist and clinical hypnotherapist, and I want to teach people about the subconscious mind and how it relates to their beliefs, actions, and behaviors. Then I also want to talk about the history of hypnosis and R T T, the known improvement benefits of both, how learning about the power of hypnosis can create a positive mindset.
And then I want to give readers some ways to practice self-hypnosis. Please create an outline for this 300 page book. That's another example. Now, you can also use ChatGPT to perform general knowledge tasks such as preparing a dinner party. So here's an example, and this is a dinner party for various people with food restrictions or various food restrictions.
Design a menu for 10 dinner guests. Most are pescatarians. Three are vegetarians, two are vegans, and one person only eats raw food. Please create the menu in a way where I don't have to buy too many different ingredients, and then you can take it a step further and get it into a shopping list. So you can just say, list all the necessary ingredients.
Now something cool. Another cool thing that chat g p t does is that it's capable of understanding and making connections about any topic that can be written somewhere, including the aisle placement of a typical supermarket. So, you could then ask it, sort this list by supermarket aisle so I can be effective when shopping.
So those are just a few examples, and I wanted to leave you with this thought that I heard recently on the Free Time Podcast with my friend Jenny Blake in episode 189 where she's sharing Jay Azo, who's her coach, and Jay talks about this check. Doug Engelbart, and he was a Navy radar technician, and he's credited for inventing the apple mouse.
And he talked about his belief in IA, which is intelligence augmentation and how he advocated for IA instead of ai. And how I understood this when I listened was that we can use AI to augment other people's intelligence, but making it our own. So using ChatGPT is a great place to start, but ultimately, Putting our own touch and our own thoughts and feelings into whatever we are wanting to produce.
And everything I've used for so far has been a base or an inspiration, and it's really enhanced my workflow. So I'm hoping that what I've shared today will help you and enhance any workflows or anything that you are doing in your business or in your life. And I would love to hear your thoughts. So if you already use it, I'd love to hear what you are using it for.
And if you haven't used it before and I've piqued your interest, then please share with me what you're gonna use it for. I would love to hear from you. Thanks for tuning in to another episode.
