Notes:
If you do this sign on the lips,  it generally means "taste."  On the sign for "taste," some people just bring the tip of the middle finger close to the lips without making contact.

While the sign PREFER / FAVOR can and does also mean "rather" there is another way to sign prefer or rather that doesn't mean FAVOR or FAVORITE.
