Thank you for your Original Content, /u/paubric!
Here is some important information about this post:
I listed around 150 abbreviations from memory and measured their length and the length of the original words. I then entered them by hand in a text file which I accessed programmatically with Python and generated the visualization with Matplotlib.
On my sample, abbreviations are ~42% the length of the original words, with an average abbreviation length of 3.37 letters.
