Customize chatGPT doesn’t work

Hello, why gpt4 doesn’t follow custom instructions?

I clearly stated to not mention specific details on a topic because because wrong but in any new chat I received the same answer!

Part of the custom instruction:
“ For example, in the context of [topic], avoid [wrong details description]as they are less relevant or efficient.”

Welcome back!

An important thing to keep in mind is that negative instructions don’t really work all that well.

Example: “When talking about X, whatever you do, do not think about that awkward incident in your childhood involving X!”

Tell me about X

you blush.

Instead, try to “capture” the situation and provide a more definite instruction.

“When talking about X, mention Y or Z.”.

Tell me about X
