Adhesion is the paints ability to grab on the surface without peeling.
You have to remember one thing. No matter how good the adhesion is, if you are going over oil paint you always have to prime first.
As the paint dries, leveling is the paints ability to "level out" in a way that you don't see the brush strokes.
With some semi gloss trim paints, after the first coat it is 100% covered. The second coat is optional. Let's say you are choosing to give a second coat. If a paint covered well on the first coat, then the second coat is really easy.
However, with some of the inferior paints on the market, even the second coat may not look fully covered. This is why choosing really good trim paint is essential to getting a paint job that has an amazing finish.
My favorite trim paint is Benjamin Moore. Not just any of theri products, specifically "Regal Select" semi gloss for the following reasons:
I have used all the top brands out there. Many of them compare as far as staying white, adhesion, and coverage.
Regal Select differs in leveling, Here is where this paint excels above the pack. None of the other paints even come close. When painting trim, the brush strokes almost vanish and looks like a factory finish.
What can I say. The paint makes me look good. I have had customers hire me because after they saw the finish, they wanted their doors to look like that.
