Upon an inquiry into the validity of a verdict or indictment:


A juror shall not testify concerning the effect of anything upon the juror’s or any other juror’s mind or emotions as influencing the juror to assent to or dissent from the verdict or indictment or concerning the juror’s mental processes in connection therewith.


The affidavit or evidence of any statement by a juror indicating an effect of this kind is inadmissible for any purpose.
