Examples of Shifts in Outlook in Sortition?

Does anyone know of examples of shifts in outlook by participants in sortition?

I’m looking for examples like in the story “The Other Guy and Me” (https://truestoryaward.org/story/51) where sortition participants had major shifts in their viewpoints due to participating in a sortition process. I know people regularly shift their policy positions, but I’m looking more for dramatic examples of shifts in worldview or overall outlooks. If you can provide links with details, that would be much appreciated.

    Afterwards, 95% of participants said that they “learned a lot about people very different from me” [22] and nearly all (98.2%) reported that they found the experience “valuable.”
