Give reasons why electrically neutral atoms still have a tendency to form an ion?

The elements have valence electrons. Metals have less valence electrons and give out the valence electrons to form cations to complete the outermost shell andattain nearest noble gas configuration. Likewise, non metals attain electrons to form anions to complete the outermost shell and attain nearest noble gas configuration.
