The other jurors neglected the details in the story and that is what made Juror 8 stand out from the rest. He was able to use critical thinking and analyze the details that were over looked.

He seemed to want approval from other members of the jury by making jokes and not being a part of much of the discussion. He always voted with the majority and did not firmly commit to one side or the other, but rather voted to which way the wind was blowing at that time. There was even one point at which he had voted not guilty, based on the majority at that time, but changed it back to guilty because he felt pressure from one of the other jurors.
