Not German, but I think in several languages, depends on my mood.
Depends on who I'm with, too. If I'm with German speaking friends, there's not really time to "think in English", and the thought process spools in German.

If I'm alone, I assume I'm thinking in English as it's my mother-tongue but, to be honest, unless one gives it conscious thought, I'm not sure inner thoughts are in any particular language. I certainly don't say "I'm going to make a cup of coffee now" in my head, it just kind of happens.

The acid test is if you are shocked or do something like stub your toe or catch yourself on the hot oven door. The swear word is probably something choice from your mother-tongue.
