 Michael Gaden

Director of Technology


Has Preferences For: ENFP

Bio: Mike has a Bachelor of Science degree in Nuclear Engineering and an MBA. He was in the U.S.Navy for ten years as an enlisted electronics technician and as a Nuclear Trained Officer on The U.S.S. Long Beach. After leaving the Navy, Mike worked in commercial nuclear power. He first learned of the Myer-Briggs Type Indicator while taking a management course for his MBA in 1984. Learning of his type preferences (ENFP) explained many things about his career and daily issues, and resulted in a major career change, although still in the area of nuclear power. He became a management consultant in commercial nuclear power and later, in the Department of Energy.

He was certified as a Myers-Briggs practitioner in 1992, and has been using MBTI in consulting and team-building since then, having determined type preferences for about two thousand individuals from 1992 until his retirement in 2017. For the last ten years before his retirement, he was the Deputy Director of Performance Assurance for a company contracted to the DOE to run a radioactive waste waste processing facility in Oak Ridge, TN. He participated in a DOE-wide learning event for senior managers in DOE and DOE contractors on how to develop and sustain a Safety Conscious Work Environment in nuclear facilities, part of a team that taught an eight hour class to approximately 2,500 managers.

Mike joined the San Diego Association for Psychological Type (SANDAPT) in 2016 and became the President in 2018.

Mike’s favorite quote came from a senior manager in a Texas utility, which at the time, was building two nuclear power plants:

'So, it’s what we do now, when we don’t have to do anything, that makes us what we need to be when it’s too late to do anything about it.'

There is an elusive, but fundamental, truth in that statement.
