What is a good way to judge if your hair is fine, medium or coarse?

A lot of people seem to compare the individual hairs to thread, but never in my life have i seen a person walking around with thread sized hairs! Another comparison ive seen is to pubes, but if you ask me they are always going to be coarser than the hair on your head. Sorry for the tmi but my boyfriend has super fine hair, his pubes are also very fine. If i compare my hair to his my hair looks coarse but if i compare my hair to my moms it looks fine. Im assuming mine is medium and hers is coarse but she tells me she has seen hair much coarser than hers. So does any one have a good way to really determine this other than looking at people you know, because this seems really flawed to me.
