Abstract: Let $ f$ be an endomorphism of the circle of degree 1 and $ \bar f$ be a lifting of $ f$. We characterize the rotation set $ \rho (\bar f)$ by the set of probability measures on the circle, and prove that if $ {\rho _ + }(\bar f)\;({\rho _ - }(\bar f))$, the upper (lower) endpoint of $ \rho (\bar f)$, is irrational, then $ {\rho _ + }({R_\theta }\bar f) > {\rho _ + }(\bar f)\;({\rho _ - }({R_\theta }\bar f) > {\rho _ - }(\bar f))$ for any $ \theta > 0$, where $ {R_\theta }(x) = x + \theta $. As a corollary, if $ f$ is structurally stable, then both $ {\rho _ + }(\bar f)$ and $ {\rho _ - }(\bar f)$ are rational.
