But I would not listen, though it would have been better, wishing to see the giant himself, and test his hospitality". This quote is reworded a tad bit, so you can understand the full meaning of what Odysseus meant in this saying. Sadly, this choice resulted in six of his men dying. In addition, in Odyssey of book ten, Odysseus does not communicate with his men about the contents of the bag he receives from Aeolus.

Odysseus should be considered unheroic because he refused to listen to anyone's suggestions and kept putting his men in dangerous situations. For example, Odysseus’ men told him to take the cheese and lambs and leave but Odysseus told them,”Ah, how sound was that!

He let his curiosity take over and stopped caring about what would happen to them.

He uses his wits to think about the situation ahead of time.
the next time he showed heroism was when he ordered the men to tie him to the mast and cover there ears with wax as the passed the sirens island, and they obeyed for once, ignoring he 's pleas to be freed as the sirens song was driving him mad, though sadly the men didn 't show this level of obeying again in the story. lastly, when he showed bravery it was in the underworld, seeing
