Robert Altemeyer, also known as Bob Altemeyer, or Dr. Bob by his students, is an Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Manitoba.

He has written extensively on authoritarianism and refined the theory into the concept (and measure) of Right Wing Authoritarianism. Altemeyer's work is extensively referenced in John W. Dean's 2006 book, Conservatives Without Conscience. At Dean's suggestion, he wrote an "everyperson" account of his findings, The Authoritarians, which is freely available online.[1]

His son, Rob Altemeyer, is an MLA in the Manitoba Legislature.
