We had a similar issue with a field we use. We asked leads to indicate their buying timeframe. Over time, this would change, but since the field auto filled, they were less likely to update it.
One workaround that I came up with was to force that field to always have a default option (thus overriding the auto fill).
Drag in an html element and paste this code in:
// use no conflict mode for jQuery
var $jQ = jQuery.noConflict();
// when the page is ready, change Opt-In
Change the "Buying_Timeframe__c" to the field name of the field you want to use it for. Make sure to use the field name and not the field label (if you labeled it differently on the form). And in the .val("-") section change the "-" to whatever your default is.
For example, if you wanted your default to say something like Select, it would end in .val("Select"). The "Select" option needs to be an actual dropdown option in your picklist for it to work.
By having the form default to that option, it should keep the generic "engineer" from popping up.
Hope this helps!
