Am I affected or effected?

Many people have tried to explain the difference between affected and effected, but I am still unclear as to what the difference is, and is there an easy way to remember what is the difference between the two?

You are effected. This is something that I always have to double check myself on. Here are some tips:

Affect is always a verb: You are going to affect him.
Effect is commonly a noun: The effect is unknown.

Effect can be used as a verb and usually means that something has been accomplished.
You were effected: the affect was accomplished making it an effect.

They are terrible words, but we would be terribly effected without them.
