    There are plenty of opportunities to meet the requirements for this achievement just playing through the game however I wanted to mention the way I use that gets all 3 in just a few minutes at the very beginning of the game and seem to be guaranteed successes at both persuading and intimidating regardless of Speech skill.

    This method requires going through the first 2 Dark Brotherhood quests, Innocence Lost and With Friends Like These...

    1. Travel to Windhelm and talk with Aventus Arentino and he'll send you to Riften.
    2. At Riften either Persuade, Bribe or Intimidate the gate guard. Persuade and Intimidate options are not guaranteed to work. Once inside you'll be stopped by Maul, Bribe him. Complete Aventus' task and return to him.
    3. Sleep in a bed somewhere other than Riften.
    4. You'll wake up in a cabin, go through a bit of dialogue and have the option to question 3 people. They each have a Persuade and Intimidate option that seem to have a 100% success rate regardless of Speech skill, though you'll only be able to pick 1 option per person. Once you've used the Persuade and Intimidate options the achievement will unlock.

    If there is any way that I can make this solution better please don't hesitate to let me know.

    GalrenAnother early spot you can try is in Whiterun. If you talk to Carlotta Valentia she'll ask you to talk to Mikael inside The Bannered Mare and you'll have the Persuade, Intimidate and Bribe options with him. The only guaranteed success is Bribe so you might want to save first before you talk to him just in case.

    Agent OlasI tried the intimidate 4 times (game kept freezing on my way out) and it worked each time on Mikael inside The Bannered Mare. I was level 6 if that is helpful.
