How do I know if avocados are ripe?

My neighbor has an avocado tree and some of the fruit is black and some is green, none soft and not Haas. What color are the ripe ones? I am leaving them on my counter to ripen and soften.

There are a variety of avocados that can be grown in the state of California let alone in the country. Here is a link on the types of avocados available: http://www.californiaavocado.com/how-tos/avocado-varieties.aspx

If you look at the indicators of when they are ripe, it is often when it is softer when you gently push on it.
