Luftmensch: Literally, “air person”. Someone whose head is in the clouds, usually concerned with intellectual or artistic pursuits while being oblivious to and out of touch with this-worldly concerns like earning a living. Usually refers to a
male for historical/sociological reasons.

Eg.- My husband is such a luftmensch. Even though our electricity was disconnected he just studies by candle-light!
