I think this basic premise was flawed. To find out their career aspirations and immediately assume that the show influenced them is pretty poor science. I find it far more likely that the people with certain aspirations just also happen, by virtue of that personality, to also enjoy that type of show. They have put the cart before the horse, so to speak.

I think it is a combination. It's true that it takes a certain type of person to like Doctor Who and Star Trek, but I also think that watching those shows will further inspire the viewer to pursue a certain occupation.
