Abstract: How to make career officials more responsive to executive leaderships is critical in political-administrative interactions. According to past literature, while the relationships of political appointees and career officials are illustrated by political control or dichotomy, these studies explain their interactions from top-down perspective. Some researchers have even argued the matter of cooperation, or mixed model between their interactions. However, they paid little attention to how career officials respond to political appointees. This study aims at examining tolerance of politics and career officials' responsive attitudes to political appointees by discussing their perception of political influence in the policy process of democracy and responsiveness. By using the survey data of the TGBS(Taiwan Government Bureaucrat Survey)from 2008 and the sample of top and middle level officials in central government, this study finds that career officials ' response to executive leadership is positively associated with their attitudes toward tolerance of politics. The findings fill a gap in the past literature about [the] political-administrative relations by focusing on a bottom-up view of career officials' attitudes toward political systems. Also, this study systematically exams the interactions between central government level's political appointees and career officials after the first turnover of ruling party in Taiwan. In the final section, research limits and further suggestions are provided for scholars and practitioners.
