I too noticed that the people that talked more seemed to get picked to be on the actual panel, whether or not they had some crazy backstory.

I honestly wouldn't mind serving on a jury at all, especially since my employer would pay me my full salary while I am serving. But the lawyers always choose to have me excused from the jury. I guess it is true what they say, that accountants never get picked for the jury since they are too analytic. The lawyers don't want people that are good with numbers and likes to look at all the facts sitting and deciding on a case.
