Classes This Week Literary devices 12 angry men Introduction: Rose deliberately constructs a parallel personal story for the 3rd Juror, whose broken relationship with his year-old son, influences his decision.
Compressed into an intense and claustrophobic 96 minutes, the script and performances do a wonderful job of highlighting and exaggerating some big points when it comes to behaviour change.
He moves at his own pace, walks over to the window and looks out, and is the 2nd last Juror to seat himself at the table. I think this is an interesting image to keep in mind when kicking off any behaviour change initiative.
By looking up at the environment, you can start to size up the surrounding conditions and environment that are contributing to why people do the things they do. And by looking out, you can seek inspiration in unusual and surprising places. Juror 8 knows that the he cannot force his opinion on the other jurors.

Emotions are high in the room, and people are resistant to change. So Juror 8 is cautious from the get-go. So finding a way to nudge rather than push is always going to be more effective in the long-term.
In working on a Breastfeeding initiative a few years back, it was clear how emotionally charged the issue was.
He talks about what it must have been like for the teenager, constantly pushed around by his father, and living in rough and slum-like conditions. Often this was effective at re-framing the issue, helping others to see things from a different point of view.
For example, simply knowing that the boy lived in a violent family environment started to change how the jurors perceived much of the evidence.
So rather than simply running from the scene of the crime, he may have been running away from another beating. The same goes for behaviour change. Effective research, observation and collaboration can help us better understand the daily reality of the people we are talking to.
So how might this affect our approach to an issue like healthy eating. While communicating the importance of eating 5 fruits and vegetables a day might seem reasonable, to a single-parent family without a car, shopping and cooking takes on an entirely new set of challenges.
And if, as is likely, they already know they should be eating better, than its clear there are bigger issues at play, including their surrounding environment.
In comparison, those who lose their temper, shout and attempt to force their opinion on others quickly lose any ability to persuade. They have an impact on people, but not the one they seek.
Attempts to scare people using fear tactics or other messaging designed to shock is a version that seeks to SHOUT at people.
So the same should apply with health promotion initiatives.

Trying to weaken the influence of the group, he calls for a secret written ballot. I want to call for another vote.
I want you 11 men to vote by secret written ballot. But if anyone votes not guilty, we stay here and talk it out. This starts a gradual shirt in momentum and provides courage to others who are wavering.
There are two other wonderful scenes when the group bonds in a natural show of unity. In the first scene, the group gathers together as a collective in response to a violent outburst by juror 3.
And in the 2nd scene, the jurors turn their backs one-by-one on Juror 10 when a sudden rant reveals his deep seated bigotry.
