Electronegativity is affected by the amount of valence electrons and the amount of orbitals. The more orbitals there are, the farther the electrons are from the positive nucleus. And since elements want to exist in their ideal state, they want to get as close as the a filled outer shell. That means an atom like Fluorine would have very high electronegativity.
