Because in order to type, you have to interrupt your train of thought. The shorter the duration of that interruption, the better.

(This is especially important in programming, where I sometimes lose track of where I was in my mind while I type.)

Well, maybe if you can't touch-type. I find that I can type and think at the same time.
