    yes, I think (so)


    Ragnar: Do you think you are a good man?
    King of Wessex: Yes, I think so.

    Taken from 'Vikings.'

    I'd like to ask if we can omit 'so' in the answer.

    No, you can't omit it.

    Possible answers:
    Yes, I do.
    Yes, I think so.
    Yes, I think I am.

    Not: Yes, I think.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
