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?".

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