As the title says, I am wondering which questionnaires are most often used in psychology.

My guess is that NEO-PI-R should be in the Top-10. One of the accompanying papers has been cited 38k times (https://scholar.google.com/citations?view_op=view_citation&hl=en&user=UTRJOukAAAAJ&citation_for_view=UTRJOukAAAAJ:MIg0yeAD4ggC).

Then I guess clinical psychology will dominate, something like the BDI maybe? Citation count is about 11k, https://scholar.google.com/scholar?hl=en&as_sdt=0%2C5&q=bdi&btnG=

Is there any way besides the citation count to get an idea of how often questionnaires are used? It does not have to be very accurate.

There is a similar post here Update list of the most used and reliable quantitative tests in Psychology for which the IPIP is one answer. But the IPIP is, at least so far, not as popular as proprietary instruments (NEO-PI-R). See citation counts for IPIP-NEO-120: https://scholar.google.com/scholar?hl=en&as_sdt=0%2C5&q=ipip-neo-120&btnG=
