List Rules Vote up the children who will be most disappointed at their first career fair.

Such a timeless question as "What do you want to be when you grow up?" feels easier when answering as a child; at that time, you've much fewer concerns regarding risk, embarrassment, practicality, job security, and are not yet bothered by the stresses of adulthood. Though they still lack much understanding of the world, kids offer many unique ideas when it comes to their future career path.

These kids' responses possess enough understanding of their talents to proudly declare themselves future Power Rangers, animals, and even inanimate objects. To some, they might appear juvenile, but others may see some hidden wisdom in these youthful dreams.
