Asking GPT-4 how Humans could improve?

In my last story Asking GPT-4 about Humans, GPT-4 listed reasons why Humans were behaving in irrational ways. I then asked him what humans could do to improve themselves:

Me: Knowing this, what could humans do to improve themselves?

GPT-4: Humans can take several steps to improve themselves by recognizing and mitigating the influence of irrational factors on their decision-making and behavior. Here are some suggestions:

  1. Develop self-awareness: Becoming more aware of one's own cognitive biases, emotions, and values can help individuals recognize when these factors might be influencing their decisions. Mindfulness and introspection can help increase self-awareness.
  2. Seek diverse perspectives: By exposing themselves to different viewpoints and engaging in open-minded discussions, individuals can challenge their own biases and assumptions, leading to more informed and rational decisions.
  3. Educate themselves about cognitive biases: Learning about common cognitive biases and how they operate can help individuals identify when they might be falling victim to these biases and take corrective action.
  4. Use decision-making tools and frameworks: Adopting structured approaches to decision-making, such as decision trees, pros and cons lists, or cost-benefit analysis, can help individuals systematically evaluate choices and minimize the influence of irrational factors.
  5. Practice critical thinking: Developing critical thinking skills can help individuals analyze information more objectively, identify logical fallacies, and make more rational decisions.
  6. Manage emotions: Learning to recognize, understand, and manage emotions can help individuals avoid making impulsive or emotionally-driven decisions. Techniques such as meditation, journaling, or seeking support from friends or professionals can be helpful for emotional management.
  7. Improve information gathering: Seeking accurate, reliable, and comprehensive information before making decisions can help individuals base their choices on a more solid foundation. Fact-checking and considering the credibility of sources are important aspects of information gathering.
  8. Develop habits that support rationality: Establishing routines and practices that promote rational thinking, such as regular reflection, setting goals, and making plans, can help individuals become more rational over time.
  9. Foster a growth mindset: Embracing a growth mindset, which involves the belief that abilities and intelligence can be developed through dedication and hard work, can encourage individuals to continuously learn and improve themselves.
  10. Seek feedback and be open to change: Regularly soliciting feedback from others and being open to adjusting one's beliefs and behaviors can help individuals refine their decision-making processes and become more rational.

By actively working on these areas, humans can make significant strides in improving their rationality, decision-making, and overall personal development.

Warning again: he's not reasoning

Here again, not a stupid answer, and probably better than what I could have written myself. But remember again, this is not GPT-4 reasoning and being clever. This is the language model trained on tens of millions of documents that computed that this answer was probably the most accurate, according to his training. Had you trained GPT only on Nietzche, Mein Kempf and National Socialist bibliography, the answer would have been completely different.

Only Humans

But still, if you just take this text, and especially the previous one, into account, you might wonder if mankind's destiny isn't just too important to leave it in the hands of humans.

Maybe, if AIs were to improve within the next following years, it could be possible to just let them govern humanity. Of course, this is a complicated question, as we would need to set up a framework for this new ruler. Asimov wrote the 3 laws of robotics a while ago, but we would, in that case, need some rules to apply to our chosen AI leader.

Well, you already know what my next question was...
