Michael Balzary (Flea)
Even-tempered and peace loving, he is not easily ruffled and is rarely given to emotional displays. Flea has a calming effect on more high-strung or volatile people, and an emotional steadiness that others find soothing. Though gentle and not easily provoked, Michael Balzary is tremendously stubborn and resists any change that requires an emotional adjustment, such as changes in his home life or marriage.
Flea seeks security and loyalty in love relationships, is extremely devoted to his loved ones and provides a warm, nurturing atmosphere for them. However, Michael Balzary tends to cling to others and prevent them from changing.
A great deal of physical affection, closeness and touching is crucial to Flea's well-being, and he has a tendency to overindulge in sensual comforts and pleasures. At times Flea substitutes food for emotional comfort and love.
Flea has strong attachments to his past, the place where he grew up, his heritage, and family traditions. In fact, Flea may be unable to step out of the habits and roles that he learned as a child. Michael Balzary's tie to his mother is very strong and Flea also seeks nurturing and protection from his spouse and other family members as well.
He needs love, affection, nurturing and enjoys being pampered - all of which is fine, as long as Flea is willing to give as well as receive the attention and "babying". Flea has a rather childish dependency on loved ones, which can make him cling to them, or be very uncomfortable with any conflict that could conceivably lead to separation. Creating a loving family is certainly a challenge for Flea - one that can be enormously satisfying if he can achieve it, and a source of great sadness if he cannot.
Michael Balzary is rambunctious and a little rowdy at times, and he enjoys sharing this kind of energy with his friends. Making noise, cheering at a football game, or even getting into a friendly fight all seem like a good time to him. In fact, Flea needs to do these things or otherwise he gets crabby.
Although he is impetuous and easily provoked (as mentioned above), Flea also has a good-natured, live-and-let-live attitude and a sense of humor, which balances it all out. While hotheaded at times, he is usually a good sport.
Flea has a buoyant, cheerful disposition and he reaches out to others in a warm, open and friendly way. His emotional generosity and lack of pettiness is well known among his circle of friends, and people often seek Flea out for help, sympathy or advice. Flea is always willing to overlook others' faults, and he sometimes overdoes his charitableness.
In love relationships, Flea desires a deep, intense and passionate union with his beloved and forms very strong emotional bonds and attachments. Flea "marries" the person he loves at a very deep emotional level, and is often extremely possessive and jealous of anyone who may pose a threat to that union. Michael Balzary can be very demanding of his love partner. Flea tends to be somewhat suspicious of his partner's relationships, even if they are merely platonic. If he is ever betrayed, Flea is capable of hating with as much force and intensity as he once loved. He is attracted to people who have an aura of mystery about them.
Promoting beauty, the arts, or entertainment can make Flea very happy. Flea wants to contribute something positive and loving to the world at large and he wants to be recognized for his beauty, artistic gifts, or loving generosity. Flea may "marry" his work - that is, being more involved in his career than in his private life. Michael Balzary is a natural host or diplomat.
