Polarizability is the degree to which a particle's electron clouds can be distorted. Electronegativity is the degree to which a particle wants to pull in electrons. The bigger the polarizability a particle has, the less electronegativity it has; for example, larger atoms have bigger electron clouds that can be easily distorted and are less electronegative.
