Abstract: The current research quantified individual participation in a jury deliberation in an attempt to predict rates of involvement as a function of situational and personality characteristics. Measured level of juror bias and conscientiousness resulted in accurate predictions for rates of participation. Furthermore, the study supports previous juror research. The methodology for quantifying and controlling factors in a deliberation are highlighted. Implications for a willingness to influence are discussed as well.
