I didn't think you'd care about what I _____(think) of you.

  • think [A general statement] or
  • thought [at a point in time] or
  • was thinking [ongoing in the past].

Other examples:

  • Would you care what I think if I hated the movie?
  • Would you care what I thought of you then?
  • Would you care what I was thinking during the class?

Both "think" and "thought" are possible, as is "am thinking"

The tense carries meaning, and so if you mean "What I in general think about you now" you would use the present. If you mean "What I thought about out at a past time" then use thought. The present continuous is unlikely in context, but not ungrammatical: "What I am thinking about you right now (unlike what I generally think about you)"

(In theory "will think", "am going to think" are also possible)
