comment Difference between った and ってた
Misleading only in the sense that it suggests that 「思う」 ⇔ "to think", when the situation is actually more complicated than that. I also feel silly writing essentially the exact same thing in two different answers.

This answer is somewhat misleading, or oversimplified at least. See my explanation in this answer to a related question: japanese.stackexchange.com/questions/13115/…

comment Is 行かされた a typo?
Hmm, I'm not sure I'd call it the standard. For example, NHK likes to use this type of causative, but it annoys other people. Not an expert though, wish I had some good references here.

@Kaji I think you misunderstood what the OP was asking. I've tried to reword the question using my interpretation... I hope I'm correct.
