Elements with high ionization energies would-------
Elements with high ionization energies would have high effective nuclear charges. This means that the positively charged nucleus of the atom has a strong hold on its electrons, making it difficult to remove them. The ionization energy is the energy required to remove an electron from an atom. Elements with high ionization energies are therefore less likely to lose electrons easily and become positively charged ions. This can also result in elements having higher electronegativities, which is a measure of an atom's tendency to attract electrons towards it.
