In many ways, John Proctor is seen as a ‘tragic hero’, he is portrayed as a man with definite great values which he has flawed. Proctor isn’t initially seen as truly moral character, his adultery and redundancy to completely dismiss his religious beliefs and rites prove otherwise. His beliefs are dismissed due to the immortality Abigail displays in her characterisation that effectively rubs off on him. John chooses to be immoral, but he himself knows the difference between right and wrong, and his conscious still plays a big role in the decisions he makes, unlike with Abigail. Throughout his characterisation, John Proctor is seen as a man of integrity, despite his immoral actions.

Nevertheless it is usually good that conquers evil and that more positives should be taken from stories rather than negatives. Stories should be judged by the level of interest it inspired in the reader and their consideration of its main theme.

On multiple occasions he pretends to be tough, even though in reality he feels weak.

On the other hand, Holden approaches his representation of a trickster in a more subtle and innocent manner. Unlike Odysseus, whose pride most always gets the best of him, Holden's only sense of demise is his immaturity. This downfall however demonstrates a more respectable connotation than the idea of total pride that Odysseus possess. However, despite a more admirable method of trickery, it is still trickery. Holden approaches his deception in a way which is harder to detect, he uses fake personas and stories to accomplish something a simple as a confidence boost.
Life is not always sunshine and rainbows.

Although the refusal of naming others gets him hanged, Proctor finally sees some goodness in himself. He says, of himself, “I do think I see some shred of goodness in John Proctor” (Miller 1166).
