Citation Style for Generative AI Usage:
Example: When citing ChatGPT:
"In response to the prompt 'Is it true that 'T' types in MBTI lack empathy?' generated by ChatGPT, it is important to note that the belief that 'T' types lack empathy is a generalization and cannot be applied to all 'T' types. Personality is complex and influenced by various factors. Personality types or MBTI results merely reflect individual tendencies and are not precise tools for predicting how an individual will behave or react in specific situations" (OpenAI, 2023).
