The electronegativity of hydrogen stands at 2.20 and is among the elements that are considered to have higher electronegativity. When it comes to the element with highest electronegativity, that trait can be attributed to fluorine that has the electronegativity of 3.98.

If we talk of the definition of electronegativity, we can say that it is a measurement with which you can measure the number of atoms that tend to take electrons from the atoms with which they are bonded to. If we take the definition in the context of periodic table you can say that the elements that are at the top right side in the periodic table can be said to be very electronegative and the atoms that are on the bottom left are less electronegative.
