Come SHTF you may not be able to walk away and stroking their ego could be dangerous to the welfare of the group, so this is a good topic. I have my own experience with the co-worker from hell which in large part drove me to retire early, which I suppose was the walk away option. A year prior I did do as 74 suggests, and was surprised at the positive change in behavior towards me (but not others), but I was already burnt out at that point and so it was too little too late.
