What's the deal with chopsticks?

A question I've pondered for many years. Why do people insist on using chopsticks to eat Asian food, even in a setting like a corporate cafeteria? These are not people who grew up using them. Isn't it easier to use a knife, fork and spoon?

My theory is that this is an affectation to make one seem more sophisticated and "authentic" than the masses. Thoughts?
