Elements that typically form negative ions are more electronegative. These are typically on the right side of the periodic table because these elements are trying to accept more electrons and complete their outer shells.
I believe an atom's electronegativity is relative to their ionization energy (increases from left to right and down to up of the periodic table) , so I would just follow the trend for ionization energy to determind an atom's electronegativity.
