There is a fourth - accommodation - where we go to shared sacrifice for the great good

It sounds like compromising

In your diagram you show compromise as loose loose - but I always think compromise is nearly always where one person sacrifices more than the other - an asymmetric exchange. So, in the analogy of a four-seater park bench with four people on it - and a fifth person arrives - in a compromise one person based on a specific criteria gets off the bench to let the other sit down. In an accommodation - everyone gives an inch to allow the other to join them.

In a relationship compromise leads to disatisfaction, at least for one, whilst accommodation leads to a reframing of benefit for the many.
