Abstract

Every person has different identity depending on their role in social relationship. A person’s self-concepts, which are individual identity and social identity, can be defined from many factors. The movie The DUFF represents the influence of bullying to social identity of its main character, a high school student named Bianca Piper. The aim of this study is to describe social identity, to find out influence of bullying to social identity, and to analyze the behavior changes of main character in the movie. The writer uses social psychological approach which includes social identity theory. The result of this study is that the main character’s behavior changes after getting bullied by other students in her school. Bullying affects Bianca’s social identity so that she loses her confidence and excludes herself from any social activities. Bianca has been gone through steps of getting social identity yet her behavior is not extremely changed. She is in a difficult situation but eventually she can defend herself from getting dangerously bullied by others. Movie The DUFF depicts that bullying still exists even nowadays. Bullying can make a person’s behavior change and influence the social identity from the bullied person.
