"'Eurylochus, remain then here yourself eating and drinking by the black hollow ship; but I will go for strong necessity is laid on me.'" This quotes shows that Odysseus is very stubborn and has a lot of pride and bravery. He knows that it's dangerous to go (especially alone) to the house of Circe but he goes anyway to save his men even though he knows that he could meet the same fate as his men.
