Electron distortion is proportional to the polarizability of electrons. When there's a greater number of electrons (large anions), electron distortion increases, and polarizability increases, so the strength of interaction also increases.
With greater polarizability, the electron cloud is able to be distorted more. Therefore it is easier to form IMFs because since the electron cloud can easily be distorted it is more attracted to partial positive charges.
