Hello .

Sorry to say but your question is not correct.

Electronegativity of a element is defined as it''s capacity or say power to attarct the shared pair of electrons in a bond towards itself.

So there will be no role of such like half-filled and full-filled orbitals.

All the best!

Pls Like the answer if you wanna to!

Full filled configuration of an element will not affect its electrinegativity as it is already in a stable state and does not want to attract any more electrons. Since electronegativity measures the attraction between an atom and electron noble gases or atoms with a full filled configuration will have no electronegativity. Therefore only half filled configuration of an atom will affect its electronegativity.
