Now by this I don’t mean pretend to be racist, sexist, or homophobic. All you need to do is exaggerate your mannerisms and movements when being asked questions. The prosecution and defense are going to be more inclined to pick a juror that is unbiased and on “their side.” By shaking your head, sighing, rolling your eyes, or even making a “tsk, tsk” noise when discussing the case, you’re not simply looking disinterested. You’re looking judgmental, like you already have an opinion formed before being part of the actual jury yet. It’s sure to make you less desirable for jury duty.
