FOREPERSON: A small, petty person who is impressed with the authority they have and handles themself quite formally. Not overly bright but dogged.
JUROR NO. 2: A meek, hesitant person who finds it difficult to maintain any opinions of their own. Easily swayed and usually adopts the opinion of the last person to whom they have spoken.
JUROR NO. 3: A very strong, very forceful, extremely opinionated person within whom can be detected a streak of sadism. They are a humorless person who is intolerant of opinions other than their own and accustomed to forcing their wishes and views upon others.
JUROR NO. 4: Seems to be a person of wealth and position. They are a practiced speaker who presents themself well at all times. They seem to feel a little bit above the rest of the jurors. Their only concern is with the facts in this case, and they are appalled at the behavior of the others.
JUROR NO. 5: A naive, very frightened young person who takes their obligations in this case very seriously but, who finds it difficult to speak up when their elders have the floor.
JUROR NO. 6: An honest but dull-witted person who comes upon their decisions slowly and carefully. A person who finds it difficult to create positive opinions, but who must listen to and digest and accept those opinions offered by others which appeal to them most.
JUROR NO. 7: A loud, flashy-handed salesperson type who has more important things to do than to sit on a jury. They are quick to show temper, quick to form opinions on things about which they know nothing. Is a bully and, of course, a coward.
JUROR NO. 8: A quiet, thoughtful, gentle person. A person who sees all sides of every question and constantly seeks the truth. A pillar of strength tempered with compassion. Above all, they want justice to be one and will fight to see that it is.
JUROR NO. 9: A mild gentle elder individual long since defeated by life and now merely waiting to die. A person who recognizes themself for what they are and mourns the days when it would have been possible to be courageous without shielding themself behind their many years.
JUROR NO. 10 An angry, bitter individual. They are a person who antagonizes almost at sight. A bigot who places no values on any human life save their own, a person who has been nowhere and is going nowhere and knows it deep within.
JUROR NO. 11: A refugee from Europe. A person who speaks with an accent and who is ashamed humble, almost subservient to the people around themself, but who will honestly seek justice because they have suffered through so much injustice.
JUROR NO. 12: A slick, bright advertising professional who thinks of human beings in terms of percentages, graphs and polls, and has no real understanding of people. They are a superficial snob, but trying to be a good sport.
