How is being good with details making people bad with socializing?

Like with autism.

Aren't all those "nonverbal cues" essentially details? Now if you look at a person and only see the person and miss the details wouldn't you then miss the "nonverbal cues"? So then why is it that being too detail-oriented causes this problem instead of being too big picture-oriented?
