Juror #1/Foreman of the Jury: A small, petty person, the Foreman is impressed with the authority he/she has and handles himself/herself quite formally. He/she is not overly bright but is determined.
Juror #2: A meek, hesitant person who finds it difficult to maintain any opinions of his own, Juror #2 is easily swayed and usually adopts the opinion of the last person he/she has spoken to.
Juror #3: A very strong, very forceful, extremely opinionated person within whom can be detected a streak of sadism, Juror #3 is also a humorless person who is intolerant of opinions other than his/her own and is accustomed to forcing his wishes and views upon others.
.Juror #4: A person of wealth and position, and a practiced speaker who presents his/her self well at all times, Juror #4 seems to think his/her self a little bit better than the rest of the jurors. His/her only concern is with the facts in this case and he is appalled with the behavior of the others.
Juror #5: A frightened young person, Juror #5 takes his obligations in this case very seriously but finds it difficult to speak up when his/her elders have the floor.
Juror #6: An honest but dull-witted person who comes upon his/her decisions slowly and carefully, Juror #6 is a person who finds it difficult to create positive opinions, but who must listen to, digest, and accept those opinions offered by others which appeal to him/her most.
Juror #7: A loud, flashy, glad-handed salesperson type who thinks he/she has more important things to do than to sit on a jury, Juror #7 is quick to show temper and equally quick to form opinions on things he/she knows nothing about. He/she is a bully and, of course, a coward.
Juror #8: A quiet, thoughtful, gentle person, Juror #8 sees all sides of every question and constantly seeks the truth. He/she is a person of strength tempered with compassion. Above all, he/she is a person who wants justice to be done and will fight to see that it is.
Juror #9: A mild, gently old person, long since defeated by life, and now merely waiting to die, Juror #9 recognizes himself/herself for what he/she is and mourns the days when it would have been possible to be courageous.
Juror #10: An angry, bitter person who antagonizes almost at sight, Juror #10 is also a bigot who places no values on any human life except his/her own. He/she is a person who has been nowhere and is going nowhere, and he/she knows it deep within him/her.
Juror #11: A refugee from Europe, Juror #11 speaks with an accent and is ashamed, humble, almost subservient to the people around him. He/she will honestly seek justice because he/she has suffered through so much injustice.
Juror #12: A slick, bright advertising person who thinks of human beings in terms of percentages, graphs and polls, Juror #12 has no real understanding of people. He/she is a superficial snob, but trying to be a good person.
