I am pretty weak at Chem, so forgive me for thenstupid question. I am really confused that whether an Electron Deficient Species(a Cation), shows more negative I effect than an anion? If its true, it would mean that Electronegative Species will show lesser - I effect,but thats not true right? So Anions should show more -I effect than Cations? A teacher told us that Cations will attract more and show -I effect because it already has a deficient of electrons? (Another apology for stupid question and bad english, i will be really grateful if someone can help me with this :) )
