To me eccentric is not a bad thing. It's just a way someone is.

I think eccentricity is one of those in the eye of the beholder things
here at ATS - the word eccentric is almost meaningless
doesn't mean you're not - out there
but in here - you're just another conformist
Some eccentrics are cranks, rather than geniuses. Eccentric behavior is often considered whimsical or quirky, although it can also be strange and disturbing. American billionaire Howard Hughes, for example, was considered to be very eccentric in his old age. He became a figure of pity when the truth came out. It was rumored that he even stored his urine in glass jars and never cut his hair or nails. Despite the above Howard Hughes was a brilliant Financier.
