The other day, a friend (HAM) made a comment about another person (HAirr). The comment made me (GalFisk) realize that I had a passive scrund of a sort about myself.

What was the comment, and what was the scrund?

Was the scrund about your name? Your ancestry? Something about your actual personality?

Was the scrund something that could apply only to you? Or to other people with a feature/features in common with you?

Interesting puzzle...and on a tangential note, I quite like the acronym Hairr. More female- (and vegan-)friendly than HAM. =)

Was the scrund something that could apply only to you? Yes. Or to other people with a feature/features in common with you? It would be possible to have a similar scrund about other people.

Was the scrund about your attitude/opinion on something? Political views? Religious views? Moral views? Interests of yours?

Is belonging to some sort of group relevant? To a group in a broader sense, as in introverts, extroverts, vegetarians etc.?

Is belonging to some sort of group relevant? See below. To a group in a broader sense, as in introverts, extroverts, vegetarians etc.? Yes, something like this - the group does not have a name though.

I had never thought of myself as belonging to this group, and had never even thought of such a group existing, but his comment made me realize such a group must exist, and that I belong to it.

Did the comment refer to HAIrr's: appearance? religion? political views? behaviour? moral values? something else entirely?

Wouldn't you make a similar comment because: you considered it rude? improper? you believe/think contrarily?

Is it correct to say that the comment expressed criticism? If yes, was this criticism about HAIrr? About general sort of people, including HAIrr? About any specific quality/feature of HAIrr? About what HAIrr did? said?

In the puzzle statement you said that the comment was about HAIrr. In your post above you say that it was about someone else. Was it about both HAIrr and someone else? Is someone else relevant to the puzzle? Is someone else related with HAIrr? Does someone else share a common quality/feature with HAIrr?

Ok, this is starting to confuse me, lol. So the people involved are you, Galfisk, your HAM friend (can we call him Matt?) who made a comment about a HAIrr (can we call that person Pat?) which made you realize you had a passive scrund about yourself. And another person (HAM? HAF? HAIrr?) is also relevant now? Could you recap please?

RECAP:
My friend Matt made a negative comment about Pat. This comment said something both about Pat, and about Matt himself.
(FA cleared: the "other person" is Matt.)
I overheard the comment, and realized that I belonged to a group of people I had never even thought of. What defines this group is having an opinion-ish that is, in very general terms, the opposite of what Matt expressed.

*is trying to think of something this comment could be relevant to, and drawing blanks* Even if it's irrelevant, are they on your skydiving team? Inquiring minds want to know. (Have you got a banana number two yet? Poor banana, having to go away...)

The common quality/feature of Pat and Matt is something connected with their: family? background? social status? physical look? views? character?

did you not realise that you shared these views/characteristics with Pat until you heard them criticised by Matt?

or did hearing the criticism polarise your views?

did Matt realise that you were similar to Pat in this way?

did Matt think he was being complimentary or positive towards Pat? indifferent?

or did hearing the criticism polarise your views? No.

did Matt realise that you were similar to Pat in this way? FA again. Pat and Matt (which is the title of a hilarious TV show btw) share the same view/characteristic which is contrary to mine.

did Matt think he was being complimentary or positive towards Pat? No. indifferent? No.

A common hobby shared by friends relevant? Such as skydiving? Or this forum? No to all.

is it being extrovert/introvert? generous/tight-fisted? sensitive/insensitive? All of the above are relevant to a varying degree, but remember that the group itself does not have a name like that.

people who like to stay in on a Saturday night? people who like parties?
people who work for a charity?
people who like a certain movie genre?
people with old-fashioned values?
or would the description be more long-winded?
as there seems to be no label, is this grouping something that no-one has ever thought of?

is this quality to do with how they relate to other people? to nature?

is it to do with how they see themselves? or more how other people see them?

is it a like/dislike? aspirations?

is it how they choose to live their life?

people who are liked for a particular reason?

for what they represent? for what they have? for a physical attribute? for what they do? for what they are?

Just people who are liked in general? People who are liked by everybody?

Is it rather "people who are liked by..."? Or "people who are liked for..."? Maybe "People who are liked despite of..."

Would be a member of the group:
- person who has many friends?
- person who has a few close friends?
- person who easily contacts with people?
- person who gets on well with everybody?
- person who likes to go out with people?

Was the comment along the lines of: "A doesn't like me, B doesn't like Pat" - which made you realize that you are liked by everybody?

***SPOILER***
Matt said, about Pat: "We don't get along."
I tried to put myself in his shoes, and found that the feeling of not getting along with someone was foreign to me. I had never thought about it, but it seems that I get along with everyone I know. I did not when I was young, but I guess I've grown up (:
Good work all!
