Everyone aspires above their station (or should!). Most everyone exaggerates a big to seem worthy of that. Employers know this.
If most people exaggerate some, they can't tell that you don't. So if the roadies describe themselves as rock stars, what are they supposed to think a self-described roadie actually is? (Something less, that's what.)
It the rule as on a dating site, everyone is "very good looking", so someone who says he is nice or average is perceived as grumpy and ugly.
