I'd suggest that the author is taking a bit of a shotgun approach
here, rather than trying to truly divide them up into basic
categories of entertainment. For instance, intellectual problem
solving is a subset of "application of an ability".
I don't have any insight into morefundamental categories. In terms
of the shotgun approach though, I'd add 'hate' as a form of
entertainment. I know many Americans who seem to really enjoy hating
terrorists, right now, for example. (Hatred apparently IS a family
value, despite claims to the contrary by bumper stickers.) Ooh, and
how about righteous indignation. It's fun to be indignant when you
believe you're right.
