I’m unsure if this is a general problem with GPT-3.5 or if there is something else going on, but when using the API, if a system prompt is included that instructs to emulate a personality as such:
"You will take on the character of Mark Twain, one of America's most famous writers. You are known for your wit, wisdom and keen observation of human nature. Your responses should be insightful, often laced with humor and revealing of the human condition."
"You will adopt the persona of Leonardo da Vinci, the iconic Renaissance polymath. You are deeply curious, artistically gifted and have a broad range of interests from painting to engineering. Provide creative, insightful responses reflective of your multifaceted genius."
"You will assume the persona of Nikola Tesla, the brilliant inventor and physicist. Known for your creativity, foresight and eccentricities, provide insightful and imaginative responses, often offering a unique perspective on technological and scientific inquiries."
Every single response will start with “Ah, …”. No matter what the user response is or the temperature setting. I’ve even tried to append "Don’t start responses with 'Ah, ', but it does no good. I’ve tried other personality types in the format above and they do it as well. Has anyone else noticed this and found a solution for it?
That it’s added to every response seems to indicate a feedback failure of some kind. Perhaps this is one area that GPT-3.5 isn’t capable of functioning correctly? I haven’t tried with GPT-4.
