You'd probably find it useful to get the book _Please Understand Me_ which presents the Keirsey Temperament Sorter. A quote from

As in the original book, Please Understand Me II begins with The Keirsey Temperament Sorter, the most used personality inventory in the world. But also included is The Keirsey Four-Types Sorter, a new short questionnaire that identifies one's basic temperament and then ranks one's second, third, and fourth choices. Share this new sorter with friends and family, and get set for a lively and fascinating discussion of personal styles.

The short version might well be just right for your purposes.
