### Hybridization for elements like S, Xe, Br, etc.

How does hybridization work for elements where some or all of the valence electrons are paired? Do the paired electrons get promoted to d orbitals?

Hybridization works the same for all elements, although some are very difficult to find in a molecular form. Count the number of bonds between atoms, and then it's just the same process

hybridization should be the same for every element.

Is hybridization just for the central atom? So then is one molecule just one kind of hybridization?
