To add on, the electronegativity is based on a scale on measurable quantities like electron affinity and ionization energy. While electronegativity itself is not an intrinsic physical property that we can directly measure, it is based off of other measurable quantities.
Electronegativity of an element is derived by combining both its ionization energy and electron affinity mathematically. In today's review session, the instructor said that Electronegativity = (Ionization Energy + Electron Affinity) / 2. Hope this helps!
