Shauna, thanks for taking time to answer. I'll have to come back and answer your questions in a while, but I'll surely do so.

Thank you @MegCoates, for answering. It is certainly comforting to reading your explanation around the behavior #2 and #3. The thing about #1, after reading the material at the childmind website, I think it could be a case of attachment issue. As such, the kid is extremely sensitive kid, in the sense that he can sense sadness and happiness very easily, i.e. even without visual cues (but I guess all children are like that). He gets extremely upset and enraged, when he is embarrassed, such as be reprimanded in public, by anybody. Not sure if there's a connection.
