# What trend in electronegativity do you see as you go down a group/family on the periodic table?

One neat trick I have is that Flourine, or $\text{F}$ has an electronegativity of $4.0$ and it is the highest so elements near Flourine also has a high electronegativity. The opposite is true for elements like Caesium ($\text{Cs}$) or Francium ($\text{Fr}$) which have the lowest electronegativity. This is useful for if you are ever asked list certain elements in order of increasing or decreasing electronegativity.
