to have a lack of confidence pertaining to a school subject, leading the student to try to avoid getting called on by all means. Usually brought on by the teacher staring at you until you get the right answer. Has nothing to do with the president.
Symptoms include:
Nervousness
Seat slouching
reddening of the face
lack of confidence
I have had Jefferson's Syndrome ever since the teacher asked my to explain why the physics demo worked... followed by a five minute stare-down
