To quote one biography
In the best tradition of mad scientists, Nikola Tesla had his less than rational moments. To be blunt, Nik's cheese quite often escaped his cracker.

Totally incapable of understanding even basic finances, this was also a man with a germ phobia of which Howard Hughes would have been proud. Tesla believed extraterrestrials had contacted him in Colorado Springs. He suffered from hallucinations, night tremors, and a terrified loathing of women wearing earrings.
