The protagonist, Philip, who was born with a club foot, moved in with his uncle Mr. Carey, the Vicar of Blackstable after his mother's death.
He dropped out of King's School at Tercanbury, came to Germany, and stays at the Frau Professor Erlin's lodging house with several guests.

"Is the food always as bad it was last night?"
"It's always about the same."
Philip had found nothing wrong with the food at all, and in fact had eaten it in large quantities with appetite and enjoyment, but he did not want to show himself a person of so little discrimination as to think a dinner good which another thought execrable.
[Of Human Bondage by Somerset Maugham]
I'd like to know if "of" means "who has" here.
Thank you in advance for your help.
