Life satisfaction is lacking for many, college survey finds

  • Updated: October 9, 2012 - 5:53 PM

A new survey smacks of marketing, and yet it raises an interesting question of self-reflection: Are you where you want to be in life? Bellevue University's survey of 1,700 Americans suggests that four in 10 would answer "no." And 32 percent said they thought they would have achieved more in life by now.

Divorced respondents were most dissatisfied. Single respondents were more dissatisfied than married ones. But the rate of those who said they believe they should have accomplished more increased with the number of children they had.

No surprise that the Nebraska college found that 47 percent of people without college degrees were not where they wanted to be. But setting that bit of self-promotion aside, how would you answer the question?
