Electronegativity is the tendency of an atom to attract electrons, while electron affinity is the amount of energy released when an electron is added to a neutral atom.

Electronegativity is the ability of an atom to attract electrons to itself while electron affinity is the energy released when an electron is added to a neutral atom.
