4. The opposite would be the company fighting you in court with expensive, fancy lawyers who's sole responsibility is to twist situations/blame and/or to lie for and protect the company or organization that harmed the person(s) sitting at the other side of the table, hurt for the rest of their life.

5. The boss had no idea who had dinged up the car door. But she went to her boss and told her boss that it was she that accidentally dinged up the new Porsche. She is admirable for (man up) her responsibility, and she gained a lot of credibility with her boss too. She asked for forgiveness, and all is fine & well now between them. I think it may have started a new friendship between them, just because she owned up (man up) to it.
