Those with high polarizing power are usually smaller cations (top left of periodic table) and those with high polarizability are large anions (bottom right of periodic table). I hope this helps!
Polarising power increases with an atom with fewer electrons and is more positively charged (up and left). Polarizability increases with an atom with more electrons and a more negatively charged nucleus (down and right)
