Sense Assumptions

Source Ultimate Intrigue pg. 91
You can easily intuit an opponent’s preconceptions.

Prerequisites: Sense Motive 3 ranks.

Benefit: You can attempt a Sense Motive check to intuit some of another person’s assumptions after 1 minute of conversation. The DC equals 20, or 10 + the target’s Bluff modifier, whichever is higher. If you succeed, you learn whether or not a falsehood of your choice related to the topic of conversation would impose a penalty on Bluff checks to convince the target of that falsehood’s truth. If you fail by 4 or less, you learn nothing. If you fail by 5 or more, the target realizes you are trying to glean information from it. You can retry this check, but the DC increases by 5 for each previous failure on this check against that target.
