A negative dipole results from a side of the molecule being more negative than the others. So, the negative dipole should be on the atom that is more electronegative and can pull other electrons towards it to become more negative. Comparatively, the positive dipole goes with the lesser electronegative atoms that give up their electrons and become more positive.
