As a type 9w8, I have a different experience with control freaks. I avoid conflict and maneuver around them (your secondary strategy), but eventually any true control freak is going to confront me head on, at which point they become quite surprised that I stand up to them. I don't abide bullies. I'm surprised that your supervisor tolerates your coworker if he's sympathetic to your plight.

A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

my natural inclination is to get in a fight, but I realize that some people do not have my tendency to get mad, say some evil things and then get over it and move on... one of those things I've picked up with age. Some people actually take the things that are said in that one or two moments of being really pissed off personally, so yeah, the secondary strategy is a safer option. Getting in fights with people with similar inclinations to myself tends to be MUCH more productive in a way because then the anger is gone and nobody is mad anymore... not having to feel like you've lopped off a part of yourself just to accommodate others in a way
and on not letting them push you around... tends to shock people sometimes when they encounter a backbone.“Oh, we're always alright. You remember that. We happen to other people.” -Terry Pratchett

Sneering at the age demographic that represents your best hopes for winning is a really, really stupid political move.

Shooting the kid in the side and the back was self defense? Right, asshole. Right.

I don't like talking about philosophy to people anymore. I'm going to lessen it.

I'm just avoiding humans for a while. Fuck 'em all. I hate indecisive people so much. They make me want to actually make their life decisions for 'em! I plan something, they say yeah and then they go bail me off at the last minute to see their Grandma. We planned this all out...
