Cypripedioideae and Vanilloideae are both a monophyletic clade in the Orchidaceae.
In the Plant theory they are taken together as Cypripedioideae. This will make them polyphyletic. Cypripedioideae is in Subphase 2 of the Orchidales. As such they are at the level of Family and could be named Cypripediaceae.
There is a duality between adapting and going their own way. They have learned as a child to be nice, friendly, obedient and adapting. They felt they would be rejected if they did not behave nicely and neatly. But inside they do not agree and want to break all rules. They want to live life to the fullest but do not have the guts for it. They can feel angry inside when they are limited but do not have the strength to express that. There is always the fear to be rejected and degraded by people who have all kinds of moral standards.
They avoid to take responsibility as that will limit their freedom to make contacts with who they want.
