MO diagrams

When doing the Molecular orbital diagram for molecules such as F2-, one F will be lower in energy than another, correct? Thanks!

No. One element would have lower orbitals than the other only if it has a larger electronegativity.

But since it's F2- wouldn't one F be more electronegative?
