deviating from the norm
eccentric - strange
A person described as ‘eccentric’ behaves in a way that deviates from convention or accepted conduct, sometimes in a humourous fashion. It is typically used in association with highly individualistic people, geniuses, or the very wealthy. Unlike the similar term ‘erratic’, it generally does not connote something dangerous.
