ChatGPT calculates responses within a fraction of a second. But instead of instantly spitting out a wall of text, it pretends to write out the response slowly, like a human.
So I asked ChatGPT itself why this is the case.
The answer? ‘I’m designed to be a text-based AI, so my responses are meant to be read at a pace similar to human conversation. This approach helps make our interactions more natural and engaging.’
It’s right. There’s no information overload. Nowhere near as boring as a similarly sized blog post.
And another hidden benefit - the labour perception bias. The extra little bit of time it takes for ChatGPT to write out the content makes the content feel far more important and valuable.
