How to use "Guileful" in context?

There is no one - and I mean no one - immune to being duped or caught out by cunning. Some people are just more gullible than others. The world is full of cunning people; some of them are good and some of them are bad. What separates the clever ones from the gullible ones is guile.

Cleverness and guile are two very different things. Guile is the ability to think things through and come up with a plan. It's the ability to deceive or mislead someone. Cleverness is the ability to be clever in a specific area.
