    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.
    last I saw he was headed her direction and looking quite displeased with her... he does NOT like her and she left the department because he wouldn't put up with her shit (funny 3 v 1 conflict!).

    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.

    The other day I was watching a movie with my friend and he said something was gross so I said "It's so yucky" and he fucking lost it. I now make it a point to use the word yucky whenever I can around him because he thinks its hilarious.

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

    The truth may be puzzling. It may take some work to grapple with. It may be counterintuitive. It may contradict deeply held prejudices. It may not be consonant with what we desperately want to be true. But our preferences do not determine what's true. -Sagan

    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...
