In fact, good one. In fact the feature turn a scientist/mathematician in a more human being. One with obssessions with numbers, with problems back home,with personality flaws but in the end he is "domesticated", age wisdom maybe or, on the other hand, he found the right project and opportunities in life.
The book "Outliers - Fora de Série." explains a lot on cases like this, Oppenheimer himself being one bad apple in the beggining, tried even kill by poisoning his post-graduation professor at faculty times. Fact that sent him straight to the psychiatrist, that in his turn, brought a sea change in his career.
To make a long story short, Oppenheimer ended up head of Mannhatan Project, and as a renowned scientist in America.
