This is an ethnographic study of the recent antiwar protestors, focusing on the activists’ objectives and motivations for their participation in antiwar rallies and addresses any discernable personality types. The overall purpose is typical of “verstehen” sociology, which seeks to understand the world as the subjects understand it. I collected data through a “snowball” networking sample of thirty-four Western Michigan interviewees and observation, both participation and non-participation. In addition, a combined survey of Altemeyer’s RWA-scale and the Social Dominance Orientation Scale was administered to participants, but will be analyzed in a later study. A qualitative content analysis was conducted and applied to psychosociological theories. Protesters’ goals and motivations were broken into two categories: objective and subjective motives, resulting in a general profile of contemporary antiwar protestors.
