This, desu. It might not get emphasized in classes and job listings, but social skills are critical to success in the vast majority of fields.
Are we talking general skills or specific work skills
Speaking multiple languages and being able to make people like you are the most powerful general skills
As far as specific skills, the more you can do, the better you are
As the serious majority of the thread has stated:
It doesn't matter if you are super fucking smart if you speak like an autist who can't get his point accross on whatever to save his life.
As long as you know how to get along with the right people and make them have their eye on you, you'll be set, also, obviously being competent enough into whatever job you're looking for helps a lot.
But here's another thing: Arrogance. With the right, non asshole levels of arrogance people will buy that you're much better than you really are, and with that alone you'll have presence.
Social skill can be learned as well.
I am a good example. From social outcast at 15, to charming, socially impactful individual at 20.
Jeez I thought someone was gonna say Big Data, LinkedIn really played me like a fiddle there.
