12 Angry Men
The Sociogram shows the dialogue between the group. It’s very obvious that Juror number 3 and Juror number 8 lead the conversation throughout the group. Number 8 engages in conversation with every person in the jury numerous times. Whereas Number 3 excludes many different members of the jury, focusing the majority of his efforts on convincing the people he views as threats.
The Foreman established the first rule, which was that each Juror sit in numerical order. A norm established throughout the deliberation was that whenever anyone wanted a vote, all the person had to do was ask. The type of vote would be determined by the first type of vote suggested.
Throughout the deliberation, Juror number 3 used intimidation to make his point. He acted as a bully in attempting to push around other jurors. Juror number 8 tries to include everyone in the group and show them that they have a voice. His strategy is more successful. Number 8 is open to anyone persons input and listens to everyone’s point of view. Number 3 is very close-minded.
Juror number 4, the stock broker, seemed to be the best educated of all the men. He looked at the case very factually. Everything was very black and white for the broker. He does a great job of communicating his opinions and ideas with the group.
Juror number 5, the Baltimore fan, came from the same neighborhood as the boy accused of the crime. He was able to relate to the boy in many ways. His vast knowledge of knife fighting helps disprove the idea that the boy stabbed his father from a downward angle.
Juror number 9, the old man, notices many minute details throughout the trial. He sees things that the rest or the jurors don’t realize they saw. The old man notices that the man who claims to have saw the boy leave the apartment had a bad hobble and that the women who lived across the street wore glasses.
