ChatGPT: Your AI Orchestra
Beyond the binary world lies ChatGPT—a harmonious ensemble waiting for the maestro’s cue. But how do you ensure the symphony you seek?
The Conductor’s Playbook: 15 Fresh Strategies
1. Framework Framing:
Introduce a specific theoretical framework for the AI to utilize.
Prompt: “Explain SQLi from a Systems Thinking perspective.”
2. Triad Testing:
Ask the AI to compare and contrast three related items.
Prompt: “Weigh the pros and cons of SQLi, XSS, and CSRF.”
3. Hypothetical Hurdles:
Propose a challenging fictional scenario.
Prompt: “If SQLi didn’t exist but everything else was the same, what might be the primary web vulnerability today?”
4. Contextual Constraints:
Limit the response to a specific context or setting.
Prompt: “Discuss SQLi from the perspective of a mobile app developer in 2010.”
5. Analogy Amplification:
Request the same analogy multiple times, each time asking for a different perspective or deeper detail.
Prompt: “Explain SQLi using a library analogy. Now, consider the librarian’s perspective in that analogy.”
6. Dual Duel:
Pose two opposing views and ask the AI to debate them.
Prompt: “Argue for and against the effectiveness of traditional firewalls against SQLi.”
7. Fictional Feedback:
Ask the AI to imagine feedback or perspective from a fictional or historical character.
Prompt: “How might Sherlock Holmes approach detecting an SQLi attack?”
8. Open-ended Odyssey:
Ask questions that don’t have a defined endpoint.
Prompt: “Walk me through a day in the life of a database administrator facing regular SQLi attempts.”
9. Extreme Examination:
Ask the AI to consider extreme or edge cases.
Prompt: “In a scenario where every web input is malicious, how might web security evolve?”
10. Legacy Lens:
Look at modern concepts through a historical lens or vice versa.
Prompt: “If ancient civilizations had databases, how might they defend against something like SQLi?”
11. Cross-discipline Convergence:
Introduce a seemingly unrelated field and merge it with your topic.
Prompt: “How might an architect’s approach to designing buildings influence SQLi defense strategies?”
12. Tool-less Talk:
Restrict the use of certain common solutions or tools in the response.
Prompt: “Discuss SQLi mitigation without mentioning firewalls or parameterized queries.”
13. Elevator Engagement:
Request a concise explanation fit for a short elevator ride.
Prompt: “You have 30 seconds in an elevator to explain SQLi to a non-tech CEO. Go!”
14. Pop-culture Parley:
Integrate current pop-culture events or figures.
Prompt: “If SQLi was a character in the latest superhero movie, what powers would it have?”
15. Feedback Fishing:
After an explanation, ask for feedback on how the AI approached the answer.
Prompt: “How do you believe your last explanation on SQLi was? Any biases or limitations?”
