    That's true. A good combination is the best way to go. I've worked with super technical people who had no social skills and didn't even bother trying to fit in. I know of one that got fired because of it.

    Every position has a need for some form of "getting along with others". How much of that is needed depends on the role. A highly skilled engineer that can't get along with his coworkers isn't worth having around in most cases.

    Soft skills, I'd say someone with good soft skills and decent technical knowledge is going to go father then someone with expert level skills. but lousy soft skills. 
    Still searching for the corner in a round room.

    Combination of both, it's make the team's life easy :-), I have worked with some super technical people with almost 0 soft skills, kinda hate that, but it is what it is.

    In most jobs, technical skills alone are not enough to be truly effective. The importance of soft skills is rising. Besides, it is harder to learn them, that's why they are even more valuable.
