### What to consider for hybridization?

Should I only consider lewis structures and orbitals when determining hybridization?

consider lewis structure, orbitals, and electron pairs which also get hybridized

Yes, for hybridization you just need to draw the lewis structure and count the bonds/lone pairs.

For hybridization, I think it is important to take a look at the electron configuration (the up and down arrows) to get a good sense.
