People who are gullible are often taken advantage of by the people whom they respect. When a person admires somebody, it is very likely that he or she can be easily misled into doing something that they would otherwise never do. In Chaucer's "The Miller's Tale", we are introduced to an extremely funny story in which Nicholas, an admirable scholar, tricks John the Carpenter in order to sleep with his wife. Through the twists and turns of the story, we begin to understand each character and their motives for behaving the way that they do. Given the society in which they live, it is very plausible that each character in the story, John, Alison, Nicholas, and Absolom, would behave in exactly the way the story tells it.
