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.

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.
