When Hamlet first encounters it, he doesn’t require much confirmation that the ghost is who it says it is. The ghost tells him that his uncle killed his father and Hamlet believes it, not expressing any disbelief; in fact, he calls it “an honest ghost” without doing anything to investigate if what the ghost said was true or not (1.5, 137).

A clear example, can be Ophelia and Hamlet in the play called Hamlet written by William Shakespeare.
