Hybridization is always happening. When you have a molecule, the atoms are moving around which create energy and cause hybridization to occur. For any given molecule you can find hybridization orbitals. Ex. NH3 is 2sp3

And how would we know when an atom needs more bonds than normally found in its ground state? Is it based on bond angles?
