I provide a summary of the achievement and if you require more detail look at the full detail version

There are 2 requirements for this acheivement :
- Marburg dislikes you (meaning : below -3 like), easily done by using only suave answers with him.
- Since the beginning of your current playthrough, you must have used more suave answers than pro and agressive.

Dossier on Marburg MAY be inconsequential, since 83% is enough (and the convo with Marburg mentions facts you dont know at 83%).
- Thanks to Omegalite
This is what worked for me and is not the only solution to this achievement. I provide a detailed runthorugh of where most of the negative reputation is gained and his dossiers. I also provide Madisons dossiers because there might be a link between her and Conrad.

You can either follow my way or just do what everyone else has been saying & just act suave when you meet Conrad Marburg & you should kill him at the end of Rome (This does not always work!!)

Youth Trumps Experience
(By carefully pushing his buttons, you provoked Marburg into fighting to the death.)

-To Make Conrad Marburg Fight You At The End Of The Museum Mission In Rome


First You must make sure that the majority of the speech options are suave (blue) when talking to people at the beginning of the game (This will give you a "Suave" perk which may be crucial to getting Conrad Marburg to talk differently to you)

Here's what you need to kill him:

Reputation with Conrad Marburg: -4 Answer blue/Suave at every chance with him, and save Madison.

Dossier on Marburg: 66% This is where I was when I got it. Lower might work. Buy the Intel relating to him, and before saving Madison, go to the right, there's an (easy) lock on a door to your left. Inside is a dossier on him. That'll get you to at least 50%.

Razor Wit: Answer Blue/Suave for the entirety of 10 conversations. Self-explanatory. Heck in Taiwan and Gregori in Moscow are both easily accessed and respond well to full conversations in Suave. Your first conversation with Marburg can count towards this, and I assume your second can as well. You'll want it before entering the museum.

You'll get the perk "You talking to me?" once he's been provoked, and the achievement once he's down. Enjoy.
