    a habit that has opened up many curious natures to me

    He didn't say any more, but we've always been unusually communicative in a reserved way, and I understood that he meant a great deal more than that. In consequence, I'm inclined to reserve all judgments, a habit that has opened up many curious natures to me and also made me the victim of not a few veteran bores.

    Hello friends,

    The blue part means: "a habit that has made me have curious characteristics"
    (the habit has made me a curious person)

    Am I right?

    It appears to mean that his being a nonjudgmental person encourages peculiar people to approach him.
