This study aims to examine individual’s behavior in gaining self-gratification in a group living. In attaining self-gratification, individual’s aims are affected, supported and sometimes restricted by other’s presence. This situation is portrayed in the two main characters of William Golding’s Lord of the Flies who try to attain their self-gratification through the estimation of reward and cost also the control of other’s reward and cost. The case study of Jack’s and Ralph’s behavior give knowledge about the determinants that affect individual’s behavior in attaining their self-gratification. This study also explains about the power and dependence occurs in individual’s relationship as the result of rewards and costs given in an interaction. The writer uses the theory of interdependence suggested by Thibaut and Kelley. By applying the theory, the study finds that the behavior of Jack and Ralph in attaining their self-gratification are determined by the reward and cost values. They estimate rewards and costs in interactions and select the most compatible repertoires to gain the most rewarding outcomes. The higher reward and less cost behavior are preferable in establishing an interaction. Both Jack and Ralph possess the ability to produce certain behavior in their partners to gain more rewarding outcomes by limiting their partners’ repertoires.
