When seeking advice or comparing options with ChatGPT, it can be helpful to ask for pros and cons as well as a rating. This approach can provide you with a more balanced and comprehensive understanding of your options, enabling you to make more informed decisions.

Here are some tips for asking for pros, cons, and ratings:

  • Be explicit about your request for pros and cons in your prompt
  • Ask ChatGPT to provide a rating or ranking based on specific criteria, such as cost, quality, or efficiency
  • Encourage the model to consider multiple factors when evaluating options

"Which is better, working from home or in an office?"

Figure: Bad example - The prompt is vague and does not specify the criteria for comparison or ask for pros, cons, or a rating

"Compare working from home versus working in an office. List the pros and cons of each option and provide a rating out of 10 for work-life balance and productivity."

"Evaluate the pros and cons of using an electric car versus a gasoline-powered car. Consider factors such as cost, environmental impact, and maintenance. Rate each option on a scale of 1 to 10 for overall practicality."

"Compare the benefits and drawbacks of learning Python and JavaScript programming languages for a beginner. Provide a rating out of 10 for ease of learning and job market demand for each language."

Figure: Good Examples - Asking for pros, cons, and a rating when comparing options.

By asking for pros and cons along with a rating, you can gain a more well-rounded understanding of your options, allowing you to make better-informed decisions with the help of ChatGPT.
