Did you ever think that he had bad information?

Ocurrirse + pensar confuses me a bit.

Thank you for the examples.

I should have mentioned that I already know what "occurirse" means.
Though, ocurrirse + pensar doesn't make any sense to me. To me ear, I'd just go with pensar in this frase. I hope you understand what I mean.

Pensar can be used as to consider, to reflect on something.

I understand your point, the sentence is not well-written, the term "pensar" is redudant, the right form is:

¿Se te ha ocurrido que él tenía una información incorrecta?

If you want to use "pensar" in the sentence then it should be:

¿Has pensado que él tenía una información incorrecta?

Regards.
