In a security group called test

I have the following rule:

Direction Ether Type IP Protocol Port Range Remote

Ingress IPv4 Any - test

If I add an identical egress rule what is the impact if any?

I know this question is old but I'm a newcomer to the group and have the same question. My host creates a security group called "default" that includes Ingress rules for Any with a remote security group of "default". I don't understand the purpose of this recursive reference.
