What is the difference between electronegativity and effective nuclear charge?

Electronegativity is the process of atoms to attract electrons in order to build bonds. Effective nuclear charge is the nucleus's pull and strength to hold in the electrons.

Electronegativity is essentially how much an atom pulls in electrons, whereas effective nuclear charge is how strongly an electron is attracted to the nucleus. They are directly proportional.

They are essentially opposites, being that electronegativity pulls on other atom's electrons vs. effective nuclear charge being the nucleus pulling in that atoms own electrons.

As effective nuclear charge increases, atomic radius decreases and ionization energy increases.
