  • The Eccentric trait picture shows a character who resembles to Doctor Emmett Brown from the Back to The Future movies, possibly a reference to the fact that inventors can build time machines.
  • Eccentric seems a bad name for this trait. For example, "Inventive" seems better. The reason is the fact that Sims having this trait are not truly eccentric, just better at inventing. The name "Eccentric" may deliver from the stereotype saying that inventors are eccentric, awkward, and crazy.
  • Oddly, Technophobe does not conflict with this trait.
