This quote shows that the men are victims because the man was put into the EST machine because of some minor thing and after a while destroyed him and his brain. Elaborate more, look for clues in text. Another place where the men are obviously the victims is when the men are up getting examined for the flu season and they are talking about the EST machine and how they cant believe they put people in it for such minor things.
A negative quality about this man is that he acts on emotions, not common sense. He’s the first to vote guilty and last to change his vote to not guilty.

Juror #2 finds it “interesting that he’d find a knife exactly like the one the boy bought”(24).

In Twelve Angry Men, the award winning three act drama written by Reginald Rose, each juror is told to reconsider a reasonable doubt in deciding the fate of a young man accused of murdering his own father. With little exception, each juror bring his own personal biases and preconceptions. However, in this rollercoaster of a drama, no other juror stands out as much as Juror Three. Though other jurors may occasionally admit a reasonable doubt, Juror Three is strictly motivated by his superiority complex, impatience, and personal grudges. Juror Three often believes his opinions matter more than others and only appreciates those who agree with him.

12 Angry Men:-Psychological Behaviour Analysis Signs Of attributions There were many examples of attribution errors and biases in the movie.

We often pride our society for becoming more advanced and better. True, we now live in a place where medicine and technology is more advanced than that of what it used to be in the past. However, criminals still litter the world, possibly even more than it had previously. To cope, we have invented, a jury system, to help us separate the guilty from the not guilty. Twelve Angry Men provides such a story about the using of the jury.
Every American citizen should serve on a jury because it allows new ideas into the verdict and it is fair to all Americans. In Twelve Angry Men by Reginald Rose, Juror 11 says, “I have always thought a man was entitled to have unpopular opinion in this country. This is the reason why I came here. I wanted the right to disagree” (28). To allow all American citizens to serve on a jury, it would allow different views and ideas from other countries to be heard.
