In the Periodic table

Expert Answer:

If an electron shell is complete, then the atom doesn't "want" any more electrons; therefore, it will not readily react with other atoms.

On the other hand, a shell that is incomplete will happily give or try to take electrons from other atoms, making it more reactive.
