Maximum likelihood is a standard approach to computing a probability distribution that best fits a given dataset. However, when datasets are incomplete or contain imprecise data, depending on the purpose, a major issue is to properly define the likelihood function to be maximized. This paper compares several proposals in terms of their intuitive appeal, showing their anomalous behavior on examples.
