Which do you like best; or; Which do you like most

Which do you like best; or; Which do you like most“Which do you like best?” or “Which do you like most?”

Is there any difference in usage between these two sentences?

Which do you like best? Which do you like most?

I’ve read there is a slight difference in usage – a subtlety – and would like to hear what native speakers have to say about it in 2014.

I don’t know what you’ve read, but I can give you a native speaker’s take on it.

I would use the above to ask for someone’s advice on which they preferred of three or more choices, where the ‘ranking’ might go from least preferred to best. ( this one, not at all, these two are ok, this one is very nice, but this one I like best. ) In other words, good.
