John Proctor's Testimony

261 Words2 Pages
John Proctor did not sign the testimony because he wanted to protect his name. In my opinion he was excessively prideful and foolish. If it would have been me, I would have signed the testimony so that I could 've lived. He should have admitted that he was consorting with the devil instead of hanging, he would still be able to be with his family if he would have been smarter about his decisions.
John Proctor was being selfish as well when he chose to die instead of sign the testimony. He had a wife he needed to take care of, kids, and a baby on the way. He should 've thought about them before he thought his name was more important. If he would have actually considered his options he might have realized that he could be there for everything
