If you like, we could use the NEO PI-R. It is copyright and not free but is a very good questionnaire assesment of personality.

I there is widespread interest (say 100+ people), I will create an online database, pay for the test uses, and collate the data. All results will remain your property.

In exchange I would like permission to use the summary data in my research.

no content needed, just an indicative vote. I have the facility here to support various online experimental stuff so it could be fun.
