John Proctor's Motivations
I have known her, sir. I have known her
John Proctor, Static or Dynamic
It is not fraud. I am not that man. My honesty is broke, Elizabeth; I am no good man.
John Proctor is highly regarded throughout the town of Salem. Most people in the town respect him and think he is a loyal, landowning man. Proctor is also an honest man. After his affair with Abigail, Proctor finally accepts he messed up and tries to make his wife happy again. Also he did not join the rest of the accused people and admit to working with the Devil. Instead he showed that he believed that witches were fake and did not sign his name away to live.

Proctors main motivation during the play is to get the witch trials to stop and save the people of the town. In the beginning of the play everyone in the town thinks Abigail has seen witches. As the play goes on, Proctor begins to realize that Abigail and the young girls of the town are making everything up. Proctor then risks his life by admitting to adultery in an attempt to discredit Abigail and the rest of the girls.
At the beginning of the play, it is found that Proctor had an affair with Abigail Williams. This shows he was unfaithful with his wife as he cheated on her. However as they play progresses, Proctor begins to show remorse for his actions. He eventually admits that he is not a good man for cheating on her, and this honesty shows a change in Proctors character. So Proctor is a dynamic character as his personality changes throughout the play.
