I think you missed a fifth category.

5. The "I'm so proud of the monster hand I made and everyone should see it or sympathize with me that I didn't get any action"

Usually after a player has made quads or a straight flush. Especially true if a player makes a royal and can't get any action. I've been at the table 7 times when someone has made a royal. Twice it went to showdown. The other five times, the royal bets, everyone folds, and he disgustedly show his hand, bemoaning his "bad" luck that no one would pay him off.
