How do radicals influence hybridization of an atom?

The radical should be included in the hybridization as it would still influence the bonds by repelling them away from itself.

### Re: hybridization and radicals

Could you give an example? It may be easier to explain using a specific case of hybridization, but in general the unpaired electron will impact the hybridization of the molecule in some way, similar to how electron pairs would.
