Basically, firms want to hire people they want to be around and that their clients will want to be around.
If something seems "off" about you, they'd rather not take a risk on you. You need to be able to get along with "real adults" in professional settings or social situations, and you need to be able to get along with your peers. That doesn't mean you have to be the beer pong champion, and it doesn't even mean you have to drink, but you have to be someone that people enjoy being around. (And you probably need to be old enough to get into the bar in the first place!)
