If I remember correctly, there was a problem illustrating the paradox of compromise (and to some extent democracy?) where there are two neighbours that want to paint their houses.
They both want to paint their house their favourite colour (e.g. red and green),
but that would be an eyesore to the other. With no option,
they decide to paint it a colour they both dislike, but don't hate as much as the other person's favourite colour (e.g. yellow).
It showed that sometimes compromise can lead to a position where both parties are worse off, compared to had no compromise been made in first place.
I did digging but I don't remember how this is called or find an article related to it, I just get house painting ads.
