Well, I surely believe that he is bot dumb at all. He considered all the benefits and downfalls of betraying Caesar. He was considerate and did what was benefiting the majority. If he didn't betray Julius Caesar, he thought there would be a dictatorship most people fear, as well as him. He thought Julius Caesar's dictatorship will break apart Senates and have absolute power.
But I don't think he is a guy with strong opinion. He was kind of easily swayed by Cassius, and he made his mind when he saw a letter that was from anonymous. Through this, we can infer that Brutus subconsciously wanted to go against Caesar or he was swayed by people. But in his case, he is not that bad. For Julius Caesar, he was swayed by like EVERYONE. By his wife Calpurnia, Brutus, Antony, people and more.

I view Brutus as we discussed in class, as a men who tries so hard to be a good politician, a true leader and do what is best for rome. However, his subconscious of power, sometimes is shown. Is he really that interested in the people's letters to be persuaded that instant? I dont know maybe he secretly desired power, but also wanted to do what is best for rome.
brutus is dumb and at the same time honorable man but he easily get tricked, he got easily tricked by cassius, i mean if you are someone's very old friend like brutus is ceasar's very old friend he shouldn't get easily tricked he should think first about his friend and then take action.
i dont really like brutus for killing his best friend for rome...i mean he betrayed his own friend and he, just like james said, is stubborn...he, like deeksha said, is easily swayed by others. he just listens to other people and do what they say
