The 10 Most Common ChatGPT Adjectives

Nobody disputes the importance of adjectives in making a piece of writing more engaging, but everybody is in agreement that they shouldn’t be placed in front of each and every noun!

That’s the problem with ChatGPT, particularly when it comes to generating long-form responses—it fires out descriptive words left, right and center to help bump up the word count, leaving us with bloated, low quality texts.

Although a proclivity for adjectives is forgivable, the thing that really gets ChatGPT users banging their heads against the wall is the fact it reaches for the same set of adjectives over and over again!

If you are putting together a list of banned AI words in a bid to make your chatbot less repetitive, be sure to read this list of ChatGPT’s favorite adjectives.

1. Multifaceted

ChatGPT loves to present a topic as being highly complex and having so many different sides and aspects.

It’s possible it does this because humans in the real world really do have a fascination with things which are complex, especially in regard to personality traits.

2. Rapid

You often see phrases like “rapid growth” or “rapid change” in interactions with ChatGPT. It appears that it has recognized a correlation between presenting something as being fast-paced and increased reader engagement.

I have to admit, my interest in a topic does intensify a little bit when the tempo rises.

3. Transformative

It’s undoubtedly a great adjective to use when describing seismic change, but ChatGPT belittles its meaning by using it in such a wide range of contexts, even when talking about trivial matters, hence why is has become one of AI’s most common words, let alone adjectives.

4. Uncharted

Yet another tactic of tapping into the deep recesses of the human psyche—there are humans who love venturing into the unknown, while others are intimidated by it.

Either way, it’s an adjective that evokes strong emotions, which is why ChatGPT deploys it on the regular.

5. Comprehensive

This super common adjective has the unique distinction of being both a common AI word and part of a common ChatGPT phrase, that being “In this comprehensive article…”.

It’s a reminder that this chatbot is an informational tool at heart, so much so that it always insists on covering a subject from A to Z.

6. Inclusive

So, ‘inclusive’ is similar to ‘comprehensive’ in meaning, but ChatGPT mostly uses inclusive in the context of having a welcoming attitude towards all kinds of people and ideas.

A lot of progress has been made in recent years in making the world a more inclusive place, and it’s possible that ChatGPT has noticed this too (or it has been trained to think this way), hence why it’s so keen to make a big deal about inclusivity.

7. Profound

The word ‘profound’ is a firm favorite in philosophical circles, used to illustrate a depth of meaning to those tricky questions about existence, consciousness etc.

Since ChatGPT adopts a formal tone by default, it’s no surprise that it likes to impress people with this intelligent-sounding adjective at any opportunity.

8. Unprecedented

If something happens, and there are no previous instances of it happening before, then of course it’s going to pique your interest.

I think we can forgive ChatGPT for making ‘unprecedented’ a staple in its vocabulary, because there can’t be many other words that do a better job of describing this specific scenario.

9. Innovative

This is one of those overused buzzwords that business and marketing folks throw out when trying to sell their brand new product or service.

Given that we know ChatGPT was trained on the patterns of human speech and writing, especially in the realm of business, it was practically written in the stars that it would become one of the chatbot’s most used adjectives.

10. Critical

When ChatGPT wants to paint a vivid picture of a situation that is both significant and urgent, it goes with ‘critical’ every single time.

It’s basically a combination of two of its other favorite adjectives: rapid and unprecedented. And since this chatbot has a tendency to be overdramatic, it makes sense that this word is frequently used.
