1: Reference: mention an idea from past work and academic literature in one of your areas of expertise, which you’re reminded of by my point
2: Push back: express skepticism about part of my idea, and explain why
3: Riff: Suggest a new, specific, and interesting idea based on my idea
4: Change the topic: Ask me a question about another topic that’s relevant to our discussion
5: Ask to elaborate: Ask me to give more detail or clarify part of my point
Each turn, the model would generate 5 options following these templates, and I would pick how to proceed.
