Realistic advice for situations where discussion just doesn’t work

A friend recently asked me for tips on dealing with a difficult housemate. As I was offering some advice, I was about to add “I’m not an expert.” And then it hit me that, actually, I am. I’ve been sharing properties with people who are not my family members for the last 23 years. I’ve had around 30 housemates, and happily, some have become good friends. I’ve also learned a lot about dealing with the annoying ones, and so when I’d written down some tips for my friend I thought they might be worth sharing with a wider audience too.
