Sibling rivalry adalah persaingan antar saudara untuk mendapatkan kasih saying dari orang tua. Didalam novel diceritakan, John adalah anak tertua di keluarganya dan kepribadian sibling rivalry yang ia tunjukkan dapat dilihat dari perilakunya sehari-hari terhadap orang-orang disekitarnya.

Tujuan dari analisis ini adalah untuk mencari tahu dan menemukan tanda-tanda perilaku sibling rivalry khususnya perilaku John Bristow serta peran lingkungan keluarganya yang mempengaruhi perilaku sibling rivalry. Objek dari analisis ini adalah sebuah novel karangan Robert Galbraith yang berjudul The Cuckoo’s Calling yang terbit pada April, 2013. Konflik utama yang diceritakan dalam novel ialah tentang rivalitas atau persaingan diantara anak-anak dari keluarga Bristow yang disebabkan perasaan cemburu dari John Bristow.

Hasil studi menunjukkan bahwa John menunjukkan perilaku sibling rivalry kepada saudara laki-laki dan saudara perempuannya. Ia menunjukkan rasa cemburu dan perilaku sibling rivalry kepada adik laki-lakinya ketika ia masih kecil, dan John juga menunjukkan perilaku sibling rivalry terhadap adik perempuannya ketika telah dewasa. Di akhir cerita, analisis tersebut menemukan bahwa masalah utama John menunjukkan perilaku sibling rivalry adalah karena ia ingin menjadi anak tunggal dan menjadi pusat perhatian di keluarganya.
