Sr vs Senior?

 
#1 Sr vs Senior?

Why is "Senior Consultant" so often abbreviated "Sr. Consultant"? Is it just to save the 3 characters, or does the word typed out in full carry any negative connotations?

As English is not my first language, the subtleties of this distinction (if any) might escape me.

At first I thought this message is a joke.

Giving you the benefit of the doubt, Sr is clearly just a shorter version of saying senior. No there is nothing negative about saying / writing the full word: senior.

Assuming this thread should now be deleted.

Thanks. No, my question was not intended as a joke. I just observed through LinkedIn that employees of certain consulting firms use the "Sr." form more consistently than "Senior".

By the way, according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mister_(Mr.):

In fact, the form mister, especially when lowercased, can be considered a variant form of Mr that is often used humorously or to offend or an informal form used as a form of address to a man whose name is not known.
