From Medieval Latin eccentricus, derived from Greek ekkentros, “out of the center”, from ek-, ex– “out of” + kentron, “center”.
Also called “quirkiness”
This behavior would typically be perceived as unusual or unnecessary, without being demonstrably maladaptive.
Seriously I can relate! 🙂
Do you have a word to share or want us to learn a new word? Join me and share it online for others to enjoy. You can read about it when you click the badge and don’t forget to ping-back the post to this site so I can collect all the word and have long list by the end of the year.
You can also be creative on how you want the word to be presented – check out Word-A-Day Collection in the menu page.
See you around.
