Our mission in life is not to change the world, our mission is to change ourselves
To begin with the explanation of the topic of effective vs affective, the dictionary meaning of 'effect' is, "A phenomenon that follows and is caused by some earlier phenomenon". When used in the form of a noun, this word emphasizes the meaning of the result of something. For instance, in the sentence, "The inflation had a major effect on the economy of the country", you can infer that for something to be in effect, something else should have happened first. Even phenomena such as the greenhouse effect, photoelectric effect and events such as side effects, after effects, etc., clearly explains the usage of the word.
Now, when 'effect' is used as a verb, it renders meaning to 'effective'. How? "Act so as to bring into existence" is the meaning of the word 'effective'. "A pain-killer can be very effective in taking care of a headache". Here, the medicine is able to produce results without having the need to influence the mood or state of mind of the patient and thus, it is effective.
As aforesaid, 'affective' comes from the word 'affect', which means to alter the mental state of someone. It may also be defined as "to have an effect upon". It is usually applied as a verb in most instances in the English language. The example, "The sales person was brilliantly affective in luring the customer to buy his products", shows that the sales person was able to influence the thinking of the customer so that he acts in a certain way and which was to buy his products. Therefore, the salesperson was an affective person.
