These are all natural English.

In speech, we would normally contract "I am not" to "I'm not".

As far as (6) is concerned, since we cannot directly know how other people feel, but can only judge by their actions and appearance, it would be more usual to say e.g. "They seemed/looked very happy". Similarly, (5) would tend to be used to reflect what they have said (e.g. that they were satisfied with an outcome) rather than directly describing their emotion.
