    I can tell

    Could the sentence I can tell mean "I am sure"?

    The situation is like that: person A "You think I am charming" - he said with a smug smile. "I can tell."
    person B "Charming, is it? Do you think I am so easily swayed by a smooth-talking man?".

    Re: I can tell

    It means that they can make this assumption based on the way the person behaves or responds.
