The Quest for Perfect Prompts: Unveiling the Six Building Blocks

Picture this: you’re on a mission to get the best results from ChatGPT and Google Bard. To accomplish that, you need to wield the power of the six prompt components: Task, Context, Exemplars, Persona, Format, and Tone. But here’s the kicker: not all of these components are created equal. Some are more crucial than others, like pieces of a puzzle that need to fit just right. So, what exactly we need. These six game

  • Task
  • Context
  • Exemplar
  • Persona
  • Format
  • Tone

Breaking Down the Magic: Let’s Examine Each Component

1. The Mighty [Task]

Think of the task as the commander-in-chief of your prompt. It’s the action verb that sets everything in motion. Whether you’re generating, writing, analyzing, or something else, be clear about what you’re aiming to achieve. For instance, if you want a three-month workout plan, start with “Generate a three-month training program for a 70kg male looking to gain five kilograms of muscle mass.”

2. The [Context] Enigma

Context is like the backstory that gives your task meaning. Who’s the user? What’s their goal? Where are they? These questions guide you in crafting the context. Imagine you’re the 70kg guy who wants more muscles. Your context might be “I’m a busy 70kg male striving to build muscle with just two gym sessions per week.”

3. The [Exemplar] Marvel

Exemplars are the examples that guide ChatGPT to brilliance. Including examples can be a game-changer. Let’s say you’re rewriting a resume bullet point. Instead of just saying, “I did this,” give an example: “I lowered Hospital mortality rate by 10% by educating nurses in new protocols, saving 200 lives annually.”

4. The [Persona] Paradox

Persona is like the role you want ChatGPT to play. Imagine it’s a helpful friend who knows exactly what you need. If you’re into fitness, this persona could be a knowledgeable physical therapist. If you’re job-hunting, maybe it’s a wise recruiter.

5. The [Format] Secret

Format is the presentation style you desire. Think about how you want the output to look. Maybe it’s bullet points, an email, or even a table. Visualize it clearly, and you’re set.

6. The [Tone] Tango

Tone is the mood you want in the output. You can ask for a casual tone, enthusiasm, or something else. Remember, you don’t need to remember every adjective out there – just tell ChatGPT the feeling you’re going for.

The Grand Unveiling: Crafting the Perfect Prompt

Alright, it’s time to put all this wisdom into action. Let’s create a prompt that’s got all the right components in all the right places. Imagine you’re a senior product marketing manager at Apple, and you’ve just launched the Apple car with Tesla, exceeding pre-order targets. You want to tell your boss, Tim Cook. Here’s the prompt:

“Hey there, ChatGPT! You’re now the senior product marketing manager at Apple, and you’ve got some exciting news to share with Tim Cook. The context? The launch of the Apple car in collaboration with Tesla, raking in 12,000 pre-orders – a whopping 200% higher than our target. The task? Write an email to Tim, celebrating our success and providing the juicy details. Use a clear and confident tone, and follow this format: Start with a TL;DR section, then delve into the project’s background, present the jaw-dropping business results, and wrap it up by thanking the hardworking product and engineering teams. Let’s make this email shine!”
