Vibrato - Do you vibrate on the pitch and below or with the correct pitch somewhere in the middle?

I learned at an early age that the ear registers the highest tone reached on a vibrating note and have always based my intonation on this theory. I have also spoken to musicians who feel that the correct pitch should be in the center of the vibrato. Opinions seem to differ. What are your thoughts on this and why?

One vote for below pitch.  I have heard centered vibrato that sounded horrible.  Maybe however the vibrato was just too wide to begin with.

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
