Michael Balzary (Flea)
Though he may appear breezy and impersonal at times (as mentioned in the previous chapter), the personal, human dimension of life is crucial to him and close to his heart.
Harmony and balance are his keynotes. Flea instinctively understands the need to accommodate other people's interests and desires, and he is always fair and willing to meet others half way. Tactful, diplomatic, and quite socially aware, Flea does all he can to avoid conflict and discord. His spirit is one of cooperation and compromise, and he often achieves through charm and discretion what would have been impossible to achieve with a direct, forceful approach.
Getting along with and pleasing others may be too important to Michael Balzary since he can be too dependent on the approval and opinions of other to make his own decisions. Michael Balzary will rarely act without seeking the counsel and feedback of other people. He prefers sharing and doing things with others rather than on his own. Being alone feels very unnatural to Flea, and he has a strong need for a partner and intimate one-on-one relationships.
Flea invests a great deal of his energy in personal love relationships and he is very idealistic and romantic about marriage. Flea seeks a partner who is his equal intellectually, and who is capable of a mental relationship as well as a physical and emotional one. He makes a thoughtful, considerate friend or lover, and he enjoys the traditional symbols of love - courtship, flowers, etc. Michael Balzary perceives relationships like an art that requires time, attention and creative effort. Flea appreciates a partner who is subtle and polished, never coarse or blunt.
Fairness and equality, both in his personal relationships and in the world, are extremely important to him. If Flea fights about anything, it is often about something he feels is unfair and unbalanced. Balance is very important to Flea. He believes in moderation in all things and avoids fanaticism and extremism at all costs.
Flea also has a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style and grace, which is reflected in the way Michael Balzary dresses and furnishes his home and workspace. Everything must be aesthetically pleasing and appropriate. Working with people as a counselor, advisor, consultant, or negotiator, or in an artistic field such as design or photography would be fulfilling to him.
World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand his intellectual horizons and broaden his understanding of the world are very attractive to Michael Balzary.
Flea has a philosophical turn of mind and is concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy his mind much of the time.
