I'm writing sentences which may come up in an interview and can't decide upon the correct tense here:

"...helps in making me try techniques I'd/I've never have thought myself capable of."

I'm leaning towards the first version, but I'm not sure...
Could someone help me?

I'd seems to be the correct tense to me. :)

I'd= I would
I've- I have


"...helps in making me try techniques I would never have thought myself capable of."

"...helps in making me try techniques I have never have thought myself capable of."

You can either say

"...helps in making me try techniques I would never have thought myself capable of."

or

"...helps in making me try techniques I have never thought myself capable of." (remove the second have)

You don't necessarily have to remove the "of" at the end of the sentence. You could simply throw on a verb like "doing" or "performing":

"...helps in making me try techniques I'd never have thought myself capable of doing."

Basically what @Inguz was hinting.
