    Stop being practical. I'm going to take action and get him fired. I need more ideas. I'm thinking I'll do what I said at the end of the OP.

    Avoid creativity like the plague. Know the rules. He's making you stronger, more capable and competent and he knows it.

    Tell people he's gay.

    You can consider it training to interact with employers who wield power over your paycheck, not just a grade.

I'm laughing hysterically at my thoughts to get him fired and I'm going to take action. The question is, how? Talking to the dean is like talking to a brick wall. The only answer we (yes, other people complained to) get is "I'll talk to him". Of course nothing happened. He'll ruin these subjects for me if I don't do anything soon. Of course fantasizing about blowing up his car won't do any good. So we need to take some action.
    We:

    - talked to him (arrogant prick thinks he's always right and we're wrong)
    - talked to the dean
    - made a petition of names from the whole class
    - talked to the assistants

    Nothing...
    I'm not the type to resort to framing but if I just might if this goes on. I need a way to fire him. I thought I might send an email from an unknown email address in an internet cafe pretending I'm an official talking about how he has been part of a mental institute or something similar. Think it will work?

    He is very much an ESTJ.
    This sounds oddly familiar. I have been in the same predicament.
    I feel so sorry for you. Your options are few.

    His options, on the other hand, are many.
    Opposition creates opposition. The other professors will back him in the end.

    Get out. Print papers of the exams you have passed. Have them verified.
    Find another school. Time and money is wasted, I know.

    Then forget him. He is not worthy of your prolonged attention.

    What on earth will you do when you get out of the university? You can't just plot against every person whose methods you don't happen to agree with. Such a waste of time.

    to the OP

    sorry not to be more empathetic but sulk it up, life is full of people who are in possitions above you who sulk, are incompotent, inefficient and can't see the bigger picture.

    You are at Uni to get an education... accept this guy isn't a great teacher and do what you went to uni for - educate yourself. You have books and a reading list and libary access.... you are in your 3rd year so you know how to study to a greater or lesser extent.

    Learn the subjects and pass your exams... period, accept this prof isn't very good and work around him.

    No. He is not normal. I've never seen anyone like him before and it will be unlikely someone like him would be my boss.

    As I said in a comment before there are much too many considerations to change schools.

    As a matter of fact I've crossed many people who's methods I don't agree with. I can cope with them usually. This guy has crossed the line much to far. People are not like him. He is an extreme in stereotypes. I'm not going to tolerate him any longer.
    Unfortunately it's not that easy considering he does not teach the subjects to study for. They are practical subjects and the final result includes, class assignments, home assignments, midterm exams and the finals. Which means if I don't hand in anything and do the final exam beautifully I'd fail. He's in charge of 60% of my final result in 3 subjects.




    I'm not trying to understand your beautiful opinions on the matter. I'm trying to get him fired. My justice is to get him fired. He deserves it.

    Take the energy you are spending on this campaign to ruin someone's life and put it toward your studies. I'm wondering why you think this is appropriate to do someone their first year of teaching. You sound like a bully - you are bored so you are picking on someone.

    I wonder what would happen if he put his energy toward getting you kicked out of uni.

    If he's a first year professor then this sounds like he's trying to develop his professional identity and taking it a bit too seriously. Overachieveing in trying to establish himself as an authoritative figure, being stricter than professors who have already gotten the hang of it and are more comfortable in their identity.

    Of course you're going to hit the brick wall with trying to talk to him and the dean because as you see him as someone who is unreasonable, they see you as unreasonable as well. You said that you have talked to him. How? Accusations or reasoning? Try talking to him again and smooth things out because they're not going to get any better by being childish and throwing mud around.
