As you can see by the list above — Any of the different types of
Adjectives can be opinions, and usually are — regardless of how “real” or infallible they may seem to be.  One may say…

“That chick has a gigantic booty!!!”

And it may be considered to be completely true to nearly everyone who sees that booty.  But that is what they thought about Jennifer Lopez back in the 90s.  Then along came Kim Kardashian.

And just when we thought we had seen it all…  Nikki Minaj…  And then Doja Cat…  And them booties just keep getting bigger and bigger!!!  Now, Jennifer Lopez’s big ol’ booty isn’t looking so “gigantic” after-all, is it?

Besides…  the word “gigantic” is not a definite size — so even if the entire world agreed — it would still just be a unanimously agreed-upon opinion. 😉

So basically, we use Adjectives to say “What Kind“, or “What Type” of the thing that we are referring to — or we use Adjectives to differentiate between other things of a similar nature, or to say what is unique about a particular thing…  Like booties 😀
