ABSTRACT

The question of this paper is whether the emotions is an intervening variable that connects between the independent variable cognition and the dependent variable resistance to the local decentralization policies of Korean Government. The three major hypotheses were tested statistically significant by structural equation model. This means emotions is intervening variable. There is a Korean say that ‘we can drive a cow to river but we cannot get it to drink.’ The metaphor of a situation that a cow can drink water is emotions as an intervening variable. Expression of metaphor makes us infer a lot from emotions easily. The implications derived from emotions are so much valuable and are openness, communication, discourses, trust and so on of the public policy making and implementation process. These kinds of implications are more important because there have been two different policy groups since Kim Dae-Joong became president in Korea. For example democratization personnel group around president decide major policies and traditional career public officials execute these polices. But there has been big chasm between them.
