    I want him to/I would like him to/I would want him to

    Hi everyone,

    I know that N1 is correct, how about the other two?

    1. I want him to open the door.
    2. I would want him to open the door.
    3. I would like him to open the door.

    Thank you.

    3 is fine and is the same as 1 (if a little politer). You could make a case for 2 but it would have to be a hypothetical and either in response to a question and/or part of a bigger statement.

    What would you want Jack to do if this room caught fire?
    I would want him to open the door and let everybody go to safety.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
