    should have

    I'd like to know the difference between "should have become (1)" and "should have become (2)".
    (1). I should have become a doctor.
    (2). I wonder if I should have become a doctor.

    Re: should have

    You could distinguish them this way:
    1 Regret that I didn't
    2 Curious about whether it would have been a good idea to become one
