How true is this, "Most people would rather work with someone who's mediocre at their job, but pleasant to be around, than a person who's exceptionally good, but a dick"?

I was learning IT stuff and got stuck at a wall with imposter syndrome and was scared I wasn't good enough, but godfather offered the advice in the question. "Son, even if you were mediocre, as long as you're decent to be around, they'll help you or give you a pass, for the most part."

Essentially, he was saying, even if I was an IT God/Rockstar engineer, if I was a complete asshole, no one would give a fuck, and would hope I'd leave the company, even if I made everyone's job easier.

Has that been true of your experience??

Edit: note mediocre in this context was just being “average” and baseline competent. Not slacking off and making work harder generally for everyone else
