Women (n=265) and men (n=103) aged 17-61 predicted the probability that a career-related dream from adolescence would come true. More women's than men's dreams included family (but only 15%). Older adults believed their dreams were less likely to come true but reported less disappointment about it. More education correlated with less disappointment. (SK)
