Curiosity is good: It is a positive thing that you are curious about various aspects of your personality, especially when you are curious about traits that impact your relationship with other people. Now would be a great time for you to have psychotherapy where you can understand yourself better and also how you effect other people. Your childhood experience with fire may be important.
