SP2750 Unit 9 Journal 1 A leaders Assum

Satisfactory Essays
1. At first it was Juror #1, who was at the end of the table, but then Juror #8 became the leader.
2. Situational Theory Leadership was demonstrated by all at some points throughout the movie. Also, Juror #1 displayed Great Man, Trait Theory, and Leadership Theory as well. Jurors #5 and #9 demonstrated the Contingency Leadership.
3. Discuss the movie in terms of:
1. Juror #1 is easily frustrated and gets uptight when someone disobeys his authority. He was concerned with maintaining his control and keeping the proceedings formal.
2. Juror #8 displayed a style of leadership that some would say was democratic. He is liberal-minded, courageous, and a decent man.
3. Juror #8 displayed this ability throughout the entire movie. He always had a persuasive but yet argumentative approach to the deliberations. His relevant use of his perspective to others is what gave him the ability to sway others to his direction.
4. Juror #1 showcased this style of authority when he decided to take the role of Foreman for the duration of the trial.
5. Juror #8 displayed this leadership style because from the beginning to the end of the trial, everyone was more than capable to make a decision based the facts that were given during the trial.
4. I believe this was an example of win-win negotiations. I feel this way because towards the end of the movie the other 11 jurors need to come to a conclusion based on facts that were given, and they had to use deductive reasoning to do so. The boy was acquitted with the charges dropped, as a result of the win-win negotiations.
5. Juror #8 was able to convince the other 11 jurors simply because he presented good, valid arguments. He also knew how to separate the fact and fiction from the given facts.
6. Juror #8 showed high regard for others and was very compassionate towards them. This display of character shows a Transformational Leadership Style. He also possessed some leadership attributes such as confidence, communication, intuition, and

    In 12 angry men there are many themes that are present one of the major themes that is found was present is, one determined and skilled individual can wield a lot of influence. Juror number eight is a “quiet, thoughtful, gentle man” he seesall points of the argument and wants to find the truth. On the other hand juror number three is “a very strong, very forceful, extremely opinionated man” his opinion is all that matters and if other people don’t agree with it they are automatically wrong. All of the characters in this story help develop the theme but in my opinion jurors number three and eight play a very large role in it.…

    12 Angry Men Analysis

    In analyzing 12 Angry Men the first theory that came to mind is the Universal Theory of Leadership. The theory is defined as the belief that certain personal characteristics and skills contribute to leadership effectiveness in many situations. This shows true with Juror #8. Juror #8 was the architect who emerged as a real effective leader. The architect showed self-confidence and assertiveness. He convinced the jury that once all thought the young man was guilty to believing he was innocent due to the lack of proof and questionable assumptions. He showed himself as respectable, knowledgeable, and authentic. The architect rose question as to whether or not the circumstances could be possible by re-enacting the situation. He challenged the process completely by doing this. He was also a leader of integrity because he was loyal to rational principles, practiced what he preached, and did this regardless of the social pressure from fellow jurors’. With these characteristic traits the architect proves to be an charismatic and effective leader.…

    Juror #10 is the character who brings in the most prejudice to the jury room as he has formed his decision from the moment he saw the young boy and sees no reason for him to waste any time debating on whether the defendant is guilty. His prejudice comes from the fact he used to live in the “slums” and consider people like the defendant to be “trash”. This is established when he states “you can’t believe a word they say…they act different… they don’t need any big excuse to kill someone.” Juror #10 never really considers the facts of the case only using them as a pretext to vote guilty and to leave early. When he found it too difficult to change people’s opinions he simply gave up and voted not guilty. “I couldn’t care less”. This shows just how little he cared for the defendant’s life and the jury system unlike juror #3 who deeply cared about the jury system and the case.…

    Furthermore, we can see that #8 is a key character in many other parts of the play. After starting to talk about the case, some of the other jurors got mad and tried to convince #8 to vote "guilty" and end the discussion. Yet, he stayed calm and tried to continue debating in spite of their efforts to "convert" him. After realizing that he is standing alone against them, he called for another vote, in which he will not participate (a rather questionable action, considering he had not yet spoke out the contradictions that he had found in the prosecution's case). This was a rather bold step, but it paid out because of #9, who changed his vote to "not guilty" because of his respect towards #8 and #8's courage. We see that despite the efforts the 11 jurors made, #8 stuck to his position and allowed the continuation…

    Not only contrasting their personalities, but also contrasting the way in which they put their words together and how they deliver them to the rest of the jurors. Additionally, the tone of their voice they use also affects the outcome of the play. Juror 3 is rude and low-tempered: “3rd Juror: Look, they can talk whenever they like. Now just be quiet a second, will you?”, on the other hand, Juror 8 is a bit more patient and projects self-control: “Alright, let’s talk about it. Let’s get it in here and look at it. I’d like to see it again” (Rose 21). The reader can notice how Juror 3 is not patient and the things he says can easily be used against him because he speaks without thinking beforehand. Juror 8 is more thoughtful and does not sound biased but rather observant and he knows what he is talking about. Juror 8 is better not only in the way he phrases things but in the way he says them which is important in this play if he is attempting to convince the remainding jurors to vote…

    Initially, the 8th Juror is independent from the other jurors for having a different verdict with them. In the preliminary vote, the 8th Juror votes for a “not guilty” verdict facing eleven votes for a “guilty” verdict because he has compassion towards the defendant’s young age. It shows that he is not afraid to express his opinion to the others even when he is all by himself. The 9th Juror states that the 8th Juror has been “standing alone against the ridicule of others” and that he wants to support the 8th Juror. This statement proves that the 8th Juror is courageous enough to fight back to the taunting of the others solely and also puts him further into becoming a ‘hero’ to the defendant. Therefore, we can see that his heroism is situated in the individual courage he displays.…
