Vulcan has its own kind of social etiquette. I wouldn't call Vulcans deficient in that area - they can clearly even interact with Humans quite well. They wouldn't call Humans socially deficient, so the reverse is definitely not true.
That being said, one specific Vulcan - Captain Solok from DS9 - WAS definitely deficient in that area. He was, in fact, deficient in the area of "not being an egotistical jackass".
Totally. Solok's motives for constantly baiting Sisko weren't logical. Why waste so much time trying to prove something if you already believe it's true? Solok strikes me as the type who kept trying to convince everyone else of his ideas and beliefs because he actually needed to convince himself.
