Background of the Study It is such a common knowledge that literature is one of the reflection of human’s expressions that represent the reality. It is also very close with conditions of every day life. Basically, in real life, literature is the part of human aspects.It consists of the feelings, relationships, and problems which are also experienced by human being in the real life.One example of the literary works is a novel. Novel is a kind of fictional work which becomes a branch of literature. It becomes a media that is used for expressing any feeling related to human life. Reading a novel can bring people to an aesthetic experience. Besides, people also can get many useful things for life by reading a novel. People can understand the novel well and also get the point, value, and ideas revealed in the novelrelated to the plot of the story itself. On the other word, novel cannot be separated from our everyday life. In short, literature and society are strongly connected. In a novel, there are characters that have same problems as humans in everyday life. However, the study of its characteristic cannot stand alone. It has to be related with the story as a whole with a suitable theory. The writer chooses a fiction novel titled I’ve Got Yout Number by Sophie Kinsella. It was written in 2012. I’ve Got Yout Number is known as a romantic chick lit novel. Sophie Kinsella herself is known before as Madeline Wickham. 1

(14) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 2 As Madeline Wickham, she has written so many books titled The Wedding Girl, Swimming Pool Sunday, Cocktails for Three and more. As Sophie Kinsella, she has written so many best seller books. One of them is a very famous novel, Shopaholic. Shopaholic has been written in many series and also has been made into a film. While for stand - alone novels, Sophie Kinsella has written so many famous novels, such as Wedding Night, The Undomestic Goddess, Remember Me? , including I’ve Got Your Number. Kinsella came with very brilliant idea and made all readers feeling addicted by reading this novel. In I’ve Got Your Number, Kinsella describes the character of Poppy Wyatt, the main female character with all her lies, cheats, steals, kindness, cheerfulness, and innocence at once which is told throughout the entire book. Poppy is described as an honest woman with integrity and good heart. In this story, she kept putting herself in situations where she was in over her head, but she just lied in order to join her famous fiancée’s family and she keeps doing that. Another side, she is also described as a rude woman. She breaks the law, she is scatterbrained and unorganized, and she is a bit slutty. Poppy’s characteristic is influenced by one of other characters, named Sam Roxton. The writer wants to reveal how Sam’s characteristics have changed Poppy’s personality for doing anything and seeing her life better. The writer sure that Poppy’s point of view has been developed through Sam’s ideas, advises, and opinion toward her. And here, strongly the writer wants to discuss about Sam’s characteristics towards Poppy’s personality development.

(15) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 3 After reading the novel, the writer wants to know deeper about what kind of person Poppy is. In the novel, Sophie Kinsella created Poppy as a nice and cheerful woman who is always trying to make people like her. The story starts with Poppy Wyatt who has been engaged with Magnus Tavish. One day Poppy has to go to Tavish family’s house and meets the big family of Tavish. Tavish family are very genius, smart, and famous in the academic life, and because of that case, Poppy feels inferior and unworthy for joining Tavish family. However, she is still trying many ways to be accepted by Tavish family. Later in the story, Poppy meets Sam Roxton indirectly. At first they were not close and always debating because of their different opinion about life. But then, day by day, they become closer and be friends. They begin to be close as friends until theyunconsciously exchanged stories. Sam begins to give his advice to Poppy and so does Poppy. Although their friendship is actually more than a difference of opinion. Indirectly, they feel the difference with each other’s presence which brings another atmosphere. This literary work is worth studying because compared to other novel, this novel has different story and problems. The writer finds an interesting thing to be discussed and it is rarely found in another literary works. It is an unusual relationship between two characters who met indirectly. This is what the writer wants to dig deeper related with whole story. The novel I’ve Got Your Number is also simple and easy to be understood. The main point is the personality development of Poppy Wyatt that makes the writer wants to reveal more.

(16) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 4 Furthermore, this thesis can be done by having strong relation with the theory of personality development by Elizabeth Hurlock. According to Hurlock, personality development caused by the patterning of person’s self-concept, habit, attitude, emotional state, sentiment, and motive. Also, Hurlock states that personality development is a stage in growth constantly changing and evoking process within an individual (Hurlock, 1974: 7). B. Problem Formulation Dealing with the explanation in the background of the study, the writer formulates two problems formulated as follows: 1. What are the characteristics of the main female character, Poppy Wyatt and Sam Roxton? 2. How do the characteristics of Sam Roxton influence Poppy’s personality development in Kinsella’s I’ve Got Your Number? C. Objectives of the Study Besides answering the problems formulated above, the aims of this study is to identify the characterization of the two characters. The description about Poppy’s and Sam’s characteristics is the main important things and plays an important role in analyzing this thesis. Firstly, the writer wants to find out about Poppy’s characteristic before and after she meets Sam. Poppy Wyatt’s different characteristics help the writer to get

(17) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 5 the answers in problem formulation. The writer also finds out Sam Roxton’s characteristics and then relates it to the second problem formulation. Second, after knowing the characteristics of Poppy before and after she meets Sam, this thesis tries to analyze on how Sam’s character influences Poppy’s personality development. Here also, the writer shows pointy how Poppy’s personality develops because of the existence of Sam Roxton and her courage to take a decision in the end. D. Definition of Terms To have a clear definition about what the writer going to discuss in this study, and avoid the misunderstanding during reading this paper, this is the definition of terms which can guide and become the keyword in this study. Those words are character, influence and personality development. The first keyword is character. Character is the person presented in a dramatic or narrative work who are interpreted by the reader as possessing particular moral, intellectual and emotional qualities by inferences from what the persons say and their distinctive way of saying it. (Abrams, 2009 : 42). The second term is influence. Merriam Webster defines the term “influence” as “the power to change or affect someone or something: the power to cause changes without directly forcing them to happen”. Third is Personality Development, personality development is a stage in growth constantly changing and evoking process within an individual (Hurlock, 1974: 7).

(18) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI CHAPTER II REVIEW OF LITERATURE A. Review of Related Research Sophie Kinsella has written many interesting chick-lit novels which arebecome best sellers. I’ve Got Your Number is her standalone novel which attracts the reader with interesting romantic story. Anwesha Mittra writes a review about this book in a The Times of India and mentions this novel as Sophie Kinsella’s best novel: I've Got Your Number is an interesting take on modern day relationships and its dependence on technology. That you do not need a heroic tale of love and loss to bring about mush is quite evident here. And like this one, some love stories are only meant to perk you up (timesofindia.indiatimes.com.,2014). Another review comes from Jayne. She writes her review in Dearauthor.com: It’s obviously taken me far too long to read one of your books but it’s something I’ve finally corrected. And you can bet that in the future I’ll be queuing up as soon as the new one is available. B+ (dearauthor.com.,2012) Those reviews show that I’ve Got Your Number is a pretty decent book with interesting and funny story. The story is very entertaining and addictive. 6

(19) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 7 Besides those reviews, there are also two theses which also use personality development theory in their analysis. The first related study is an undergraduate thesis from Sanata Dharma University which also analyzes about the influence of a character into another character personality development. The title of the thesis is “The Influence of Jamie Sullivan on Landon Carter’s Personality Development Seen in Nicholas Spark’s a Walk to Remember”by Puput Trisanti Arini. In her analysis, Arinipoints Landon’s characteristics before he meets Jamie. He is described as mischievous, disobedient, impious and pessimistic. However, his personality starts to change after he meets Jamie Sullivan; he becomes polite, mature, religious and optimistic. Puput also points out Jamie Sullivan’s characteristics. Jamie is simple, religious, helpful, kind, obedient and optimistic. The analysis shows that Landon’s relationship with Jamie influences him to be a better person. Landon Carter’s personality becomes better and undergoes qualitative and slow development (Arini, 2011:xi). Another related study also shows a character influence toward another character personality. The study uses Twilight by Stephenie Meyer as the object of study. This analysis is conducted by Sanata Dharma University student, Ayu Astryani. The title of her thesis is “The Influence of Edward’s Character towards Bella’s Personality Development as Seen in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight”. Her study aims to find out Bella characteristics before she meets Edward and how Edward influences her personality change.

(20) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 8 In her study, Astryani finds out that Bella used to be gloomy, pathetic and flat before she meets Edward. After she and Edward become lovers she becomes more cheerful. Edward’s existence has a big influence toward Bella’s personality development (Astryani, 2012:xii). This analysis also based on how another character influences the main character’s personality development. In this case, the novel is different than those two novels mentioned above. This analysis uses Sophie Kinsella’s I’ve Got Your Number as the object of study. The writer finds it interesting to find out how Poppy Wyatt’s personality develops after she starts to communicate with Sam Roxton and accidentally become friends with him. B. Review of Related Theories 1. Theory of Character and Characterization It is obvious that character is the most important element in a story. There will be no story without characters. That is why every story needs character in order to make the story more interesting. According to Abrams, characters are the person presented in a dramatic or narrative work who are interpreted by the reader as possessing particular moral, intellectual and emotional qualities by inferences from what the persons say and their distinctive way of saying it (Abrams, 2009:42). Characters in a literary work can remain stable or change as the plot continues. E.M Forster in Aspects of The Novel (1927) divides characters into

(21) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 9 flat character and round character. Flat character is built around "a single idea or quality" and is presented without much individualizing detail, and therefore can be described adequately in a single phrase or sentence. The round character is complex in temperament and motivation and is represented with subtle particularly. In other words, flat character does not develop throughout the story while round characters progressively develop as the plot continues. There are several ways the author presents a character. MJ Murphy in Understanding Unseens (1972) classifies nine ways to reveal a character’s personality as follows: a. Personal description Sometimes the author mentions the characteristic of a character through a personal description in a novel. The author can describe a person appearance and clothes (1972:161). b. Character as seen by another Instead of describing a character directly, the author can describe him/her through the eyes and opinions of another. The reader gets, as it were, a reflected image (1972:162). c. Speech The author can give us an insight into the character of one of the persons in the book through what that person says. Whenever a person say

(22) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 10 something or speaks with another character, it gives the reader a clue about the characteristic of this character (1972:164). d. Past life The past life of the person mentioned by the author can give the reader a clue about the past events happened in the person’s life which help to shape a person’s character. It can be seen through the author’s direct comment, thoughts of the person, another person or conversations (1972: 166). e. Conversation of others The author can also give clues to a person character through the conversations of other people and the things they say about him (1972:167). f. Reactions A person’s character can also be figured by his/her reaction to various situations and events in the story (1972:168). g. Direct comment Sometimes the author just point out the person’s characteristics by comment on a person’s character directly (1972:170).

(23) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 11 h. Thoughts The author can give us direct knowledge of what a person is thinking about. The author can tell the reader what different people are thinking (1972:171). i. Mannerism The author can describe a person’s mannerisms, habits or idiosyncrasies which may also tell us something about his character (1972:173). 2. The Relation between Literature and Psychology Literature and psychology are different in many ways. Literature is a part of art which is in the form of any written work. However, psychology is a scientific study of mental functions and behaviors. In other words, psychology studies how humans mind works. Despite the difference between those two, psychological approach also can be used to analyze a literary work. The application of psychological approach to literary works can be applied in different ways. It can analyze the author psychological elements, the psychological analysis to the influence of a literary work towards the reader and the last is the psychological analysis to the intrinsic elements of a literary work. Every literary works has characters which usually represents real person in reality. Most characters have emotions, motives, and experience personality change throughout the story. The main object of this thesis which is I’ve Got Your Number novel also has a lifelike character that is similar to real human being. The aim of this analysis is to reveal the influence of one character which results on another character personality development. Personality deals with

(24) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 12 human psyche, therefore it is necessary to use psychological approach to analyze this literary work. Specifically, this thesis uses the theory of personality development by Elizabeth Hurlock which is explained in the next part. 3. Theory of Personality Development Personality is the most important element in a person which determines the way a person behaves, feels and thinks. It is clear that every person has different personality. Hurlock mentions that every person has different personality patterns. Personality pattern is composed of traits, or specific qualifies of behavior, which characterize the individual’s unique adjustment to life as shown in his behavior and thoughts (Hurlock, 1974:19). A person’s personality pattern is not inherited since birth. It is formed as a person experiences many things in his/her life throughout the learning during the course of prolonged social relationship with other people. Hurlock points out three major factors which determine the development of someone personality pattern: Three major factors are at work in determining the development of the personality pattern: first, the individual’s hereditary endowment; second, early experiences within the family; and third, important events in later life outside the home environment (Hurlock, 1974:19) Hereditary is the first factor which influences someone’s personality patterns. There are some features which are inherited since we were born. However, the interaction between a people with his/her family also plays a big role in

(25) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 13 determining someone’s personality. Family is the persons we are getting to know at the first time. A little child usually learns lot of things from their parents before they are ready to live in the society. Then, a person should get to know people besides his/her family. It makes the experiences of the life in the society as the last major factors in determining someone’s personality pattern development. A person usually is not satisfied with his/her personality. They usually have a desire to change or improve it. The dissatisfaction often occurs when other people does not like their personality. In order to be accepted by others, they try to become a person everyone desired them to be. People also feel the urge to change when they feel that their personality has brought disadvantage into their live. There are three characteristics of change in personality. The first is some changes are better, some are worst. Second, some are quantitative and some are qualitative and third, some occur slowly and some rapidly (Hurlock, 1974: 120). Personality changes require efforts from the person itself. Usually they are the result of multiple revisions in the thoughts and feelings related to the person’s concept of self (Hurlock,1974:124). There are certain conditions which are responsible for personality change, these are reported to be most important, there are physical changes, environment, significant people, social pressure change, role changes, strong motivation, changes in the self concept and psychotherapy. In a normal person, there are usually several causes of personality changes. These causes may or may not be interrelated (Hurlock,

(26) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 14 1974: 124). It means that every person has different causes of personality changes. In other words, some conditions are not related to a person’s personality change. For example, not every person needs psychotherapy in order to change his/her personality. Some people can do it their selves without a professional help. There are some conditions which are related to this thesis: a. Significant people For some people, personality changes are influenced by the change of significant people in their life. That person could be a part of family, friends, lover or spouse. It depends on how much the significant person’s attitude, values, etc differs from the individual. b. Strong Motivation When the motivation to improve the personality pattern is strong enough, changes can be effected. Most people are motivated to change their traits which they believe will improve their social relationship and social acceptance. c. Changes in self concept Self concept is the core of personality patterns. It determines the kind of adjustment a person will make. A change of the whole self concept can change the entire personality pattern of a person. In order to change the self concept a person must be willing to see his/her true self not as he/she would like to be or what others expects him/her to be.

(27) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 15 C. Theoretical Framework Firstly, the writer needs to find out Poppy Wyatt’s characteristics before and after she meets Sam Roxton and also Sam Roxton’s characteristics, which is presented in the novel by using the theory of character and characterization. The writer also uses Murphy’s method to identify a character. In this novel, Poppy and Sam’s characteristic can be seen through her thoughts, speech and character as seen by another. After that, the writer uses Elizabeth Hurlock’s theory of personality development. Then, the writer relates her personality development to significant people in her life which is Sam Roxton. The writer wants to show how Poppy’s personality development influenced by Sam Roxton and also the way Sam helps Poppy to have a better perception about herself.

(28) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI CHAPTER III METHODOLOGY A. Object of Study The object of this study is one of Sophie Kinsella’s best seller novels,I’ve Got Your Number. It was published on 14th February 2012 and consists of 433 pages. The genre of this novel is Chick – lit which mostly enjoyable by young female readers. This novel begins when Poppy Wyatt, a young woman loses her precious engagement ring.

(29) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 17 by another character. Literature and psychology are two different things. However, psychological approach can be used to analyze a literary work: Psychological relates to a discussion of a state of mind out of which literary creation crises. It comes onto a criticism in two ways, in the investigation of the act of creation and in psychological study of the authors to show that the relation between their attitudes and states of mind and the special quality of work. Psychological approach can be used to interpret a work of literature such as behavior of the characters in a novel or play by applying psychological theories (Daiches, 1981: 329-344). Literary criticism can be used in two ways. First is to analyze the relation between the literary work and the author’s state of mind. Another way is to analyze the literary work itself without including the author’s psychological element. It also can be used to analyze the character in the literary work and the psychological conflicts of the character. In this study, the writer uses psychological approach to analyze the main character, Poppy Wyattpersonality development in the novel. The personality development theory applies to find out Sam Roxton’s influence in Poppy’s personality development. C. Method of the Study This study uses library research as the method of study.

(31) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI CHAPTER IV ANALYSIS A. The Characteristics of Poppy Wyatt and Sam Roxton Every novel has interesting character which gives contribution to the storyline. Of course the character has to fit the theme and genre of the novel.In this chapter, the writer analyzes the characteristics of two important characters in I’ve Your Numberby Sophie Kinsella which is Poppy Wyatt and Sam Roxton. Poppy Wyatt is the main protagonist in I’ve Your Number. The reader can see that the novel is based on Poppy‟s point of view. Poppy is an ordinary woman which does silly things to save herself in certain situation. Later, she accidentally meets Sam Roxton, a serious businessman who has different personality with her. Sam Roxton‟s presence in Poppy‟s life brings lots of changes in her life and also develops her personality. In this analysis, the writer divides two parts of Poppy and Sam‟s characteristics. There are Poppy‟s characteristics before and after she meets Sam and second is Sam Roxton‟s characteristics. The purpose is to show readers that Sam‟s influence helps Poppy to make a decision and be a better person. 1. The Characteristics of Poppy Wyatt This part of analysis is about the characteristics of Poppy Wyatt, the main protagonist. She is nice, cheerful, kind but also insecure and dishonest.She has some problems with her inferiority which is related to her fiancé, Magnus 19

(32) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 20 Tavish‟s family. Furthermore, her personality starts to develop under Sam Roxton‟s influence. Therefore, this part divides the analysis of Poppy‟s personality into two parts. The first part is Poppy‟s characteristics before she meets Sam and the second is her characteristics after she meets Sam. a. Poppy’s Characteristics before She Meets Sam This novel starts when Poppy loses her engagement ring. The ring was given to her by Magnus Tavish her fiancé. The ring is inherited for three generations of Tavish family. They are academicians. Magnus‟ parents, Anthony and Wanda are professors. Magnus is also well educated. Poppy feels inferior because she thinks that she is not as smart and educated as the Tavish family. Anthony write books, Wanda writes books, Magnus writes books and his elder brother Conrad writes books. Even Conrad‟s wife Margot writes books. Which is great. I mean, it‟s a wonderful thing, all these genius intellectuals in one family. But it does make you feel just the teensiest, weensiest bit inadequate. Don‟t get me wrong, I think I‟m pretty intelligent. You know for a normal person who went to school and college and got a job and everything. But these aren‟t normal people; they‟re in a different league. They have super-brains. They‟re academic versions of The Incredibles (Kinsella, 2012: 35-36). Poppy thinks that the Tavish family is more superior than she is. She refers to them as people in different league who is different than normal people. She always compares herself and thinks lowly of herself. She is certainthat Magnus‟ parents do not really like her. Anthony is so sarcastic and Wanda always asks Poppy‟s point of view about feminism. Poppy has a degree

(33) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 21 in physiotherapy. For Poppy, the degree is not good enough to impress her future in-laws. Anthony looked up over his half-moon glasses, with those bright, cold eyes of his and said, „A degree in physiotherapy. How amusing.‟ I felt instantly crushed. I didn‟t know what to say. In fact, I was so flustered I left the room to go to the loo. After that, of course, I froze. Those three days were sheer misery. The more intellectual the conversation became, the more tongue tied-tied and awkward I was. My second-worst moment: pronouncing „Proust‟ wrong and everyone exchanging looks. Then at the end, he looked over at me and enquired, „Do they not teach anatomy at physiotherapy school, Poppy?‟ and I was just mortified (Kinsella, 2012: 36-37) Anthony Tavish refers to Poppy‟s degree as “amusing” which makes Poppy feels more insecure and inferior. In Poppy‟s perspective, Anthony Tavish makes fun of her because she is only a physiotherapist. She never writes any books like the Tavish family does. The Tavish family always talks about academics stuff and Poppy does not really understand what they are talking about. Magnus says that Anthony was joking about the “amusing” degree, but Poppy thinks that it was not a joke. She feels like the Tavish family isunderestimating her because she is not smart enough. Poppy feels humiliated and inferior, but she never tells the Tavish family how she really feels about them. She just tries to fit in and hides her true feelings.Poppy also has a wedding planner named Lucinda. Actually, Poppy does not really want her to plan her wedding, but Lucinda is the old friend of Tavish family. Lucinda stresses her out, she makes the wedding plan seems more complicated.

(34) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 22 In fact I don‟t know why I bothered to have a wedding planner. But I only ever think that thought to myself very quietly, because Lucinda is an old family friend of the Tavishes and every time I mention her Magnus says, „Are you two getting along?‟ in raised, hopeful tones, like we‟re two endangered pandas who have to make a baby. It‟s not that I don‟t like Lucinda. It‟s just that she stresses me out. She sends me all these bulletins by text the whole time, of what she‟s doing and where, and keeps telling me what an effort she‟s making on my behalf, like the sourcing of the napkins, which was the hugest saga and took her for ever and three trips to a fabric warehouse in Walthamstow (Kinsella,2012: 72). When it comes to the Tavish family, Poppy always feels inferior. Lucinda is the old friend of the Tavish family and Poppy just cannot refuse her as the wedding planner even though she does not like it. As a wedding planner, Lucinda is pretty bossy and she makes Poppy do most her works but Poppy keeps doing it anyway. When Poppy loses the engagement ring, she is afraid that Magnus‟s parents will underestimate her more. She does not want them to know her as a girl who loses the family heirloom ring. Poppy does not have any solution than lying to them. She pretends that she burned her hand, so they will not ask why she does not wear that ring. My legs are shaking as I ring the bell. Actually shaking. I feel like the scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz. Any minute I‟ll collapse on the path and Wanda will torch me for losing the ring. Stop, Poppy. It‟s fine. No one will suspect anything. My story is, I burned my hand. That‟s my story (Kinsella, 2012:37-38). Poppy chooses to lie than tell them the truth about the ring. She is afraid that they will be angry at her and thinks she is irresponsible. Luckily, Magnus parents‟ plane was diverted, so she does not have to see them in few days,

(35) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 23 Poppy pretends she is disappointed about that. Poppy says to Magnus that she is looking forward to see his parents. That means Poppy does not even tell her fiancé about her inferiority feeling. The truth is that Magnus‟ parents do not know that Magnus is going to marry Poppy. Magnus also lies to Poppy. Previously Magnus said that his parents were excited to have Poppy as their daughter in law. This makes Poppy more anxious and insecure about herself. She starts to make a speculation on why Magnus have not told his parents about the wedding. Poppy always thinks that Anthony and Wanda hate her. I knew it. The professors don‟t think I‟m good enough. I‟m like that girl in the opera who relinquishes her lover because she‟s too unsuitable and then gets TB and dies and good thing too, since she was so inferior and stupid. She probably couldn‟t pronounce „Proust‟ either (Kinsella, 2012:43-44). Poppy uses the word unsuitable, inferior and stupid to describe herself which show her self-concept. Poppy cannot see her own worth and always underestimate herself. Poppy keeps on trying impress Tavish family even though it means that she should lie and cheat all the time. In the moment Magnus‟ parents arrive, Poppy just keeps lying about the ring. In that moment, Poppy has not meet Sam directly, so she asks Sam from the phone to help her play scrabble which is a word forming game. Poppy tries harder and harder to impress the Tavish family. I lower my voice, glancing at the door. „We‟re playing scrabble. It‟s a nightmare.‟ „Scrabble?‟ He sounds surprised. „Scrabble‟s great.‟ „Not when you‟re playing with a family of geniuses, it‟s not. They all put words like “iridiums”. And I put “pig”. Sam bursts into laughter

(36) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 24 „Glad it‟s so funny,‟ I say morosely. „OK, come on.‟ He stops laughing.‟ I owe you one. Tell me your letters. I‟ll give you a good word.‟ (Kinsella, 2012: 107). Poppy cannot play scrabble good enough and she is afraid the Tavish family will underestimate her again. Sam‟s help is really useful for her. It makes Poppy wins the scrabble and she is happy because she can beat the Tavish family‟s score. It gains her confidence, but also makes her feels bad because she is actually cheating. Actually Poppy is a nice, cheerful and caring person, but she always tries to please other people. She wants people to like her even though it means that she is not being herself anymore. Her inferiority can be seen throughout the story. Her thoughts show she is always insecure when she is around the Tavish family.She feels uncomfortable when she hangs out with the Tavish family and she does not think that she needs Lucinda as her wedding planner. Another side, she always hides her true feelings with her lies and pretends that she is comfortable in order to please others and join them. b. Poppy’s Characteristics after She Meets Sam Poppy meets Sam directly when Sam offers Poppy to make a fake engagement ring so Poppy will return his phone. Previously, they only communicate from phone by texting and calling. Sam asks Poppy to forward his messages, but Poppy cannot stand to read those messages.Poppy feels safe to tell her problems to Sam because Sam does not know people she knows.

(37) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 25 Poppy starts to change after she meets Sam face to face in the restaurant. There, Sam gives Poppy lots of advices and makes her realize what she had been missing. At first, Poppy does not want to admit that she feels inferior and always tries to please people. Actually, Poppy embarrassed because everything Sam said is actually true. „I know this is none of my business. I haven‟t been married. I haven‟t met your fiancé. I don‟t know the situation.‟ As he speaks, blood creeps into my face. I don‟t know why. „No‟, I say. „You don‟t. So-„ He presses on without listening to me. But it seems to me you can‟t – you shouldn’t – go into a marriage feeling inferior in any way.‟ For a moment I‟m too stunned to respond. I‟m groping for the right reaction. Shout? Slap him? Storm out? „OK, listen,‟ I manage at last. My throat is tight, but I‟m trying to sound poised. „First of all, you don’t know me, like you said. Second of all, I don’t feel inferior –„(Kinsella, 2012:233) Even though she does not want to admit it, Sam knows how Poppy feels about herself. Sam points out Poppy‟s value and she does not need to feel inferior to anyone else. Sam says to Poppy that she is also great because she helps lots of people as a physiotherapist and she does need to be genius like the Tavish family. Poppy is successful, kind, helpful and also an attractive woman for Sam. Poppy just needs to be herself and starts to help herself instead of helping others. Finally,Poppy realizes that Sam was right about her. After that, Poppy becomes more expressive and dares to express her feelings to others. Poppy can show how angry she is when she finds out that Lucinda is the one who steals her engagement ring. Lucinda also cheats with Magnus. Poppy comes to Lucinda‟s flat and directly accuses her for stealing the ring.

(38) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 26 „You took my ring!‟ As the words burst out, I can feel my cheeks turning pink, to add to the effect. Maybe I should stamp my foot, too. „Oh, for God‟s sake.‟ Lucinda wrinkles her nose disparagingly, as though to accuse one‟s wedding planner of theft is a total etiquette nono. „You got it back, didn‟t you?‟ „But you took it!‟ I step inside her flat, even though she hasn‟t invited me in, and can‟t help glancing around (Kinsella, 2012: 379-380). Previously, Poppy feels inferior to Lucinda because she is the old friend of the Tavish family. Now Poppy finally has courage to face people who are mean to her. Poppy becomes stronger and bolder. Lucinda did lots of mistakes to her, so she has a right to be angry at her and Lucinda owes her an explanation about everything. Sam also suggests that Poppy talk to Wanda and Anthony so she can make everything clear.Sam‟s advices and suggestions encourage Poppy to make important decision in her life. Finally, Poppy can tell Wanda how she really feels about them and also asks Wanda‟s opinion about her. I have to say something. I have to. It‟s now or never. Go, Poppy. „Wanda, you‟re making me feel inferior.‟ The words rush out. „Do you really think I‟m inferior or is this just in my mind?‟ Argh. I did it. I can‟t believe I said that out loud „What?‟ Wanda‟s eyes widen so far, I notice for the first time what a stunning periwinkle blue they are. I‟m taken aback by how shocked she seems, but I can‟t back down now. „I feel inferior when I‟m here.‟ I paused „Always. And I just wondered if you really thought I was, or…‟ (Kinsella, 2012: 390) Finally, Poppy can show Wanda how she really feels about the Tavish family. Poppy tells that she feels so inferior because they are so intelligent and she is not. She tells her that she was hurt of Anthony‟s joke about her “amusing degree and she is afraid that they will hate her. Fortunately, Wanda does not

(39) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 27 hate Poppy after all. She likes Poppy and she wants Poppy to be her daughter in law. Anthony‟s joke is just a joke; there is nothing personal about that. The fight in the church is only a misunderstanding. Wanda explains everything Poppy needs to know. „You‟re a lovely girl, Poppy. Great fun. I was looking forward to having you as a daughter-in-law.‟ I wait for my hackles to rise at the phrases ‟great fun‟; for my internal prickliness to put in an appearance… but somehow it doesn‟t. For the first time since I‟ve met Wanda. I‟m able to take her words at face value. By „great fun‟ she does not mean „low IQ and inferior degree‟. She means ‟great fun‟ (Kinsella, 2012:394) Wanda‟s explanations make Poppy realizes that she does not have to be inferior to anyone else, especially the Tavish family. She does not misinterpret their words anymore.Poppy pays the price for her bravery. She glad to know the truth that Anthony and Wanda never think that she is inferior. Poppy‟s personality influence also reflects through her text messages which is a main theme of I’ve Got Your Number. Poppy used to text with lots of smiley, hugs and kisses symbols and Sam uses straightforward style without any symbols. Sam points out Poppy‟s messaging style are related to her personality which always wants everyone else to like her. Poppy starts to use Sam‟s texting style, just straightforward without any smiley, hugs and kisses. He sent another smiley face! I don‟t believe it! What‟s happened to the man formerly known as Sam Roxton? He‟s broadening his horizons. Which reminds me, where have all your kisses gone? I look at my phone, suprised at myself. Dunno, You‟ve cured me (Kinsella, 2012: 348-349)

(40) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 28 The quotation above is when Sam and Poppy texting each other. From the quotation above the writer can see that Poppy changes her messaging style under Sam‟s influence. Sam also slightly changes his messaging style.She changes it after Sam points out her messaging style. In the end of the story, Poppy finally knows what she wants. At first she was hesitate, but later she realizes that she loves Sam. Sam is a man who knows her worth, unlike Magnus who wants to marry her only to show his parents that he can be committed. Magnus is also not a good man for Poppy because he lies and cheats to her. After Poppy meets Sam, she becomes more confident and does not feel inferior anymore. At first, she felt inferior to the Tavish family, but because of Sam. She overcame her inferiority and becomes more confident. Poppy finally realizes her own values. Poppy also becomes more honest. It is shown when Poppy encourages herself to ask Wanda Tavish about her. She confesses her true feelings to Wanda that she feels inferior to the Tavish family. Poppy also becomes brave, she can accuse Lucinda for stealing her engagement ring. Poppy finally knows what she wants and she does not try hard to please others anymore. Sam‟s influence makes Poppy a better person. 2. The Characteristics of Sam Roxton Besides Poppy, Sam Roxton is also an important character. He plays a big role in Poppy‟s life and influences her decision and personality. Sam is a serious businessman who accidentally meets Poppy because of a cell phone. Firstly,

(41) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 29 Poppy does not really understand Sam because his characteristic is very different to her.Later, Poppy starts to understand Sam and falls in love with him. In the beginning of the story, the writer can see that Sam is a straightforward person. It can be seen from Sam‟s messaging style. Everything is always so short and to the point. Poppy always adds symbols and friendly words in a text message and she cannot understand why Sam‟s text messages are so short. God, his replies are abrupt! It's driving me nuts! Does everything have to be so short? Does he have to be so curt and unfriendly? As I clock yet another brief email I can't help exclaiming out loud. 'Are you allergic to typing, or something?' It's ridiculous. It's like he's determined to use the fewest possible words: Yes, fine. Sam Done. Sam OK. Sam Would it kill him to add 'Best wishes'? Or a smiley face? Or say thank you? (Kinsella, 2012: 54). Poppy likes to write long messages with smiley face, hug and kiss symbols and also friendly signature like “Thank you” and “Best Wishes”, so when she sees Sam‟s texting style she cannot understand him at all. Poppy thinks that short and straightforward messages reflect that he is so curt and unfriendly. According to Poppy, people should send friendly text because it gives good and friendly impression. 'OK', says Sam at last. 'Let's just get things straight. In the first place, borrowing this phone does not give you a licence to read and critique my emails.' He hesitates. 'In the second place, short is good.' I'm already regretting having spoken. But I can't back down now. 'Not that short,' I retort. 'And you ignore most people completely! It's rude!' There. Said it. Sam is glowering at me. 'Like I said, I prioritize (Kinsella, 2012: 133).

(42) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 30 Sam is always straightforward because he does not want to say unnecessary things and get to the point. As a businessman, Sam prioritizes which message is important to be replied. He likes short messages, shorter is better for him. Sam always be straightforward to everyone he knows. He thinks that say friendly words and insert symbols is not necessary, unlike Poppy who always use those things to text anyone she knows. Sam got lots of emails from his co-workers and old friends. However, Sam rarely replies those messages. He only replies the important business messages and ignores others messages. Sam‟s ignorance bothers Poppy a lot. All those unanswered emails that have been nagging away at me. All those poor ignored people, trying to get in touch with Sam. Why shouldn't I answer them? I'm doing him such a service! I feel like I'm repaying him for his favour with the ring. At least when I hand this phone back, his inbox will have been dealt with (Kinsella, 2012: 151). Sam is not only a straightforward person, but she also does not really care about what others think about him. It is different from Poppy who always cares about others opinion about her. The example is when Sam and Poppy meets directly in a jewelry store. Sam helps Poppy make a fake ring so Wanda and Anthony will not find out about the missing ring. The shopkeepers think they are engaged couple looking for a ring. It is obvious that Sam buys a cheap fake emerald ring. 'No, of course not!' I say, shocked. 'Don't be ridiculous! I just feel terrible that the whole shop thinks you're a cheapskate, when you were actually doing me a massive favour. I'm really sorry.' I wince.

(43) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 31 Sam looks baffled. 'What does that matter? I don't care what they think of me.' 'You must care a bit.' 'Not one bit.' I peer at him closely. His face is calm. I think he means it. He doesn't care. How can you not care? (Kinsella, 2012:143) Poppy is aware that people will think Sam is a cheapskate who buys cheap and fake jewelry for his fiancée. Poppy feels guilty because Sam helps her about the ring. Surprisingly, Sam says he does not even care about what the shopkeepers think about him. He really does not care and it makes Poppy surprised. Poppy always care about her image in front of other people, so she cannot understand why Sam does not care at all. Other people‟s opinion does not bother Sam; he does not get the reason why he should care about others opinion. Sam is also very different with Magnus, Poppy‟s fiancé. Magnus is perfect for Poppy. He is the man of her dreams while Sam is a serious and straight businessman. Despite their different personality, Poppy starts to admire Sam. Sam is very kind to her and she starts to see another side of Sam‟s personality which is kind, strong and also generous: Magnus and Sam are so very different. It's like they're made out of different stuff. Magnus is so shiny, so mercurial, so impressive, so sexy. But just a teeny weeny but self-obsessed. Whereas Sam is so... Straight and strong. And generous. And kind. You just know he'd always be there for you, whatever (Kinsella, 2012: 281). This analysis shows Sam is straightforward and indifferent, he does not care about other‟s opinion. He seems cold at first but later Poppy finds out that Sam is also kind, generous and caring. Sam is very different to Poppy who is feisty, obsequious and also insecure. This kind of Sam‟s characteristics later

(44) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 32 draws Poppy closer to him. Sam is also able to help Poppy gets trough all of her problems. B. Sam Roxton’s Influence towards Poppy’s Personality Development It is shown from the previous analysis that one of the characters in this novel, Sam Roxton, influences Poppy‟s personality development. Here, the writer wants to show how Sam influences Poppy‟s personality change.Poppy knows Sam by chance; Poppy loses her engagement ring and her phone in the same day. Then, she finds a phone in a trashcan. Poppy takes the phone because she needs it to find her ring. Incidentally, that phone belongs to a businessman, Sam Roxton‟s PA (Personal Assistant), Violet. Sam always asks his PA to forward and reply his messages. Sam wants his phone back, but Poppy insists on keeping the phone until she finds the ring. Since then, Poppy and Sam starts to get closer and closer. Later, Sam becomes the most important person to Poppy and she changes because of him. According to Hurlock, there are certain conditions which are responsible for personality change. Those conditions are physical changes, changes in environment, significant people, changes in social pressures, changes in roles, strong motivation, and changes in self-concept. In Poppy‟s case, the factors are the significant people in Poppy‟s life which results in the change of Poppy‟s selfconcept. Furthermore, the influence from the significant people to bring about personality changes depends on how much their attitudes, values and so on differs from the individual (Hurlock, 1974: 126). In other words, the individual will be

(45) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 33 motivated to effect greater changes if there is a great disparity.According to the story, Poppy and Sam have different personality; Poppy is insecure, feisty, dishonest and obsequious. Sam on the other hand is very straightforward, indifferent, and honest. Sam‟s influence to Poppy‟s personality development is shown when Sam and Poppy have a chat in a restaurant. There, Sam meets Poppy who accidentally causes a chaos in Sam‟s company because of her text messages. Actually Poppy has a good intention because she only tries to help Samby sending friendly messages to his co-workers. She also tries to know Sam‟s personal problem with Willow and a man who can possibly be Sam‟s dad. Sam knows that Poppy is just trying to help, even though it does not end well. Now is Sam‟s turn to see Poppy‟s message and getting into her personal problem. In that restaurant, Sam tells Poppy straight the fact about herself and gives her good advices. Gradually, Sam changes Poppy into a better person than before. First, Sam‟s influence turns Poppy into a more confident person. Sam changes Poppy only by talking to her, heart to heart. Sam senses that Poppy feels inferior to the Tavish family. She always talks highly of them and insecure about her own status. However, Poppy is a cheerful and active person outside. Sam knows how Poppy feels about herself. When he tells her about that, she denies it again. Sam makes Poppy realizes that she is actually so insecure and she secretly hides her true feelings to others. She always acts tough, strong and happy in front of everyone. Sam is gazing at me, shaking his head. 'You are a big surprise, you know that? This is a big surprise.' He taps the phone.

(46) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 34 'What?' 'You're pretty insecure, for someone who's so feisty on the outside.' 'I'm not!' I retort, rattled. 'Not insecure? Or not feisty?' 'I... 'I'm too confused to answer. 'I dunno. Stop it. Leave me alone." 'You talk about the Tavishes as if they're gods-' (Kinsella, 2012:227) 'You do. It's obvious from everything you say. And it's baffling to me. Look at you. You're professional. You're successful. You're . . .' He hesitates. 'You're attractive. Why should you feel the Tavishes are in a "different league" from you?' (Kinsella, 2012: 233) In the second paragraph, Sam helps Poppy to realize her own worth. As a straightforward person, Sam tells Poppy straight about it. Sam thinks it is not make sense that Poppy feels inferior to the Tavish family because she is a professional and successful physiotherapy. Poppy is also physically attractive, so she does not need to feel inferior to the Tavish family. Sam words give a big impact to Poppy, she starts to think about her inferiority feeling which actually is unnecessary. In another conversation, Sam asks Poppy a specific reason about why she feels inferior to the Tavish family. Poppy tells him that it is because they are smart and she is not as smart as them. So, Sam tells Poppy that she should not feel inferior in every way. As academicians, the Tavish family helps to educate people and give valuable information. Poppy feels inferior about it because she thinks she is not as great as them. 'It is absolutely what I think.' He looks deadly serious now. „These academics guys have to feel important. They give papers and present TV programmes to show they're useful and valuable. But you do useful, valuable work every day. You don't need to prove anything. How many people have you treated? Hundreds. You've reduced their pain. You've made hundreds of people happier. Has Anthony Tavish ever made anyone happier?' (Kinsella, 2012: 280-281)

(47) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 35 Sam convinces Poppy that she had done a great job too. As a physiotherapist, Poppy helps lots of people and makes them happy by reduce their pain. Anthony Tavish does not make everyone happier like Poppy does. In other words, Sam tells Poppy that she does not need to feel inferior about her job. Her job helps lot of people and it is better than bunch of academicians who show up on the television. Sam tries his best to help Poppy. He gives her useful suggestions. As her friend, Sam cares about her and he wants her to be more confident. Poppy can sense that Sam‟s criticism to her are getting into her personal life. Furthermore, Poppy secretly admits those things are true. Sam‟s straight words slowly changes Poppy‟s point of view about herself. „I know this is none of my business. I haven‟t been married. I haven‟t met your fiancé. I don‟t know the situation.‟ As he speaks, blood creeps into my face. I don‟t know why. „No‟, I say. „You don‟t. So-„ He presses on without listening to me. But it seems to me you can‟t – you shouldn’t – go into a marriage feeling inferior in any way.‟ For a moment I‟m too stunned to respond. I‟m groping for the right reaction. Shout? Slap him? Storm out? „OK, listen,‟ I manage at last. My throat is tight, but I‟m trying to sound poised. „First of all, you don’t know me, like you said. Second of all, I don’t feel inferior –„(Kinsella, 2012:233) Sam straightly suggests Poppy to not get married before she can get rid of her inferiority feeling. Sam knows that it is none of his business, but he cannot help to say those truths in front of her face. As an honest and straightforward person, Sam dares to say those things in front of Poppy‟s face even though Poppy feels a bit insulted by his straight words.

(48) PLAGIAT PLAGIATMERUPAKAN MERUPAKANTINDAKAN TINDAKANTIDAK TIDAKTERPUJI TERPUJI 36 Second, Sam also influences Poppy to be braver and dares to do things she always hesitates to do. Sam convinces Poppy to be more strict to Lucinda an also be honest to her future in laws. Sam sees everything through the text messages Poppy receives. Then, Sam sees there is something wrong about Lucinda‟s messages to Poppy. As Poppy‟s wedding planner, Lucinda is supposed to work for Poppy, but she treats Poppy badly. She makes Poppy to do all the work that actually is hers. Without hesitating, Sam tells Poppy that Lucinda treats her badly and she should be clear to her. 'Who's Lucinda?' 'My wedding planner,' I answer reluctantly. 'That's what I thought. Isn't she supposed to be working for you? What is all this shit she's laying on you?' (Kinsella, 2012: 225-226) 'And her tone's pretty bossy, if you ask me.' 'It's only her manner. I don't mind . . .'I'm trying to throw him off this path, but he's relentless. 'Why don't you just tell her straight, "You're working for me, cut out the attitude"?' 'It's not as simple as that, OK?' I feel on the back foot (Kinsella, 2012: 226) Once again, Poppy denies that Lucinda treats her that way. She tries to defend Lucinda and shows Sam that he is wrong about her.

Poppy thinks his advice does not makes sense at all, but Sam convinces her to believe she can do it. He believes the only way to solve her problem is to ask them directly about how they really think about her. Sam gives Poppy a lesson that being honest is the only way to know the truth. Sam doesn't hesitate for a minute. 'You say, "Mr and Mrs Tavish, you're making me feel inferior. Do you really think I'm inferior or is this just in my mind?"' 'What planet do you live on?' I stare at him. „I can't say that! People don't say things like that!' Sam laughs. 'Do you know what I'm about to do this afternoon? I'm about to tell an industry CEO that he doesn't work hard enough, that he's alienating his fellow board members and that his personal hygiene is becoming a management issue.' (Kinsella, 2012: 238) Later in the story, Poppy follows Sam‟s lead and finally she solves her problem. She asks Wanda her opinion about her and she also admits her inferiority. Wanda claims that she does not consider Poppy as inferior. Actually, Wanda likes Poppy and she wants Poppy to be her daughter in law. Poppy glad she asks Wanda about it. Thanks to Sam, Poppy does not need to feel inferior anymore. . When Poppy wants to take an important decision in her life, she remembers Sam. Poppy hears Sam‟s voice in her ear and it encourages her to be a better person than before. Sam gives Poppy a power to get through all her problems. Even though Sam only gives her advices and tells her the truth, but it makes a great impact to Poppy‟s personality development. The weirdest thing is, I keep hearing Sam's voice in my ear, reassuring me and bolstering me and telling me I can do it. It's as if he's giving me a pep talk, even though he's not here. And it's making me stand taller. It's making me feel like I can do this. I'm going to be a Whole New Poppy (Kinsella, 2012: 385-386).

Sam‟s words and advice makes her believes she can solve all her problems. Later, Poppy can talk straight to Lucinda and she also confesses to Wanda about her inferiority. Even though there is still bit insecurity inside Poppy, but at least she starts to realize her worth and speak up her mind. Third, Sam‟s influences also helps Poppy to care more about herself than she cares about others. Poppy starts to care less about what everyone else think of her. Sam discovers it when he reads Poppy‟s text messages. When Sam views those messages, He criticizes many things, including Poppy messaging style. 'Are you so scared that people will hate you?' 'What?' I stare at him, not knowing how to react. 'What are you talking about?' He gestures at the phone. 'Your emails like one big cry. "Kiss, kiss, hug, hug, please like me, please like me!"' 'What?' I feel like he's slapped me round the face. "That's absolute . . . Crap'. (Kinsella, 2012: 225) Sam cannot understand why Poppy needs to put lots of emoticons in her text message. From Poppy‟s message Sam can see what kind of person Poppy is. Her messages reflects Poppy is afraid that people will hate her and she tries to be as friendly as possible so people will like her. Sam says it straightforwardly and his statement slaps Poppy right into her face. Poppy hates to admit it, but everything he says is the truth. Poppy saw lots of Sam‟s received and sent messages before and she also criticized him. She said he was rude to ignore some messages and replied shortly. Now, Sam also gives his opinion to Poppy‟s messages. Sam can see Poppy‟s

Sam sees Poppy always tries to impress everyone and forget about herself. 'I saw a girl who races to help others but doesn't help herself. And right now, you need to help yourself. No one should walk up the aisle feeling inferior, or in a different league, or trying to be something they're not. I don't know exactly who your issues are with, but . . ." He picks up the phone, clicks a button and turns the screen to face me (Kinsella, 2012: 237). In that conversation, Sam encourages Poppy to help herself. Poppy races to help others, she is too kind to others and never be too kind to herself. Later Sam looks over to Poppy‟s to do list in her phone and everything she writes is about how to impress her future in-laws. It makes everything clearer to Sam and he needs to know Poppy‟s whole story. Sam makes Poppy realizes that she does not need to impress everyone around her.

The first is the characteristics of Poppy Wyatt and Sam Roxton in I’ve Got Your Numberand the second is the way Sam’s Roxton’s character influences Poppy Wyatt’s personality development. The first problem formulation is divided into two parts and two subparts in the first part. The first is about the characteristics of Poppy Wyatt and the subparts are about her characteristics before and after she meets Sam Roxton. As for the first subpart, the analysis reveals that Poppy was insecure, dishonest, obsequious and also inferior before she meets Sam Roxton. She was insecure because of the Tavish family which is her fiancé, Magnus’ family. The Tavish family is famous and intelligent, all members of Tavish family are highly educated people with PhD degree, and they appear in television while she is just an ordinary woman who has a physiotherapy degree.
