Nobody wants to work with a dick who's an expert at (e.g.) C++ and is obnoxiously right most of the time.

But many people want to work with an easygoing person who's a great teammate with good enough tech skills who's willing and able to become a C++ expert for the good of the team, if that's what's needed.

The reality is that "many recruiters prefer candidates having all the desired soft skills (such as good communications) while missing some of the required hard skills (e.g. tech skills) rather than vice-versa. Hard skills training is a lot easier than soft skills training" which is a quote from my blog post on just this topic.
