The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Trophies
Snake Tongue
Successfully persuade, bribe, and intimidate

Throughout the world and during conversations you’ll be given the chance to choose how you respond, whether that’s persuade someone, bribe someone or intimidate someone. Just do one of these successfully for your trophy. There’s a good chance that intimidate (and maybe even persuade) won’t work early on, and that’ll be because your speech level won’t be high enough, so sell loads of items, buy loads too, and even your unsuccessful persuades/intimidation dialogue responses will result in speech skill points, helping you raise your speech level. There are plenty of options around, just make sure you do loads of side missions and such to get more opportunities.

Here's the easiest/quickest way I think to get this.

First, you can persuade and intimidate without any special perks, while
bribing a guard requires a perk point(though you can get it back if you like).

Now, you'll get to Whiterun pretty early in the game. Use the wagon out front
to travel to Riften(20 gold). At the gate a guard will try to extort money
from you to enter the city. Save the game before taking the wagon there so that
if you fail the persuade you can reload & try again. You can threaten to tattle
on him, which gets him to back off. Right inside the gates to the city a man
will start mouthing you(once again save as soon a you're inside the gates).
You can use intimidate to get him to back down.

Now for bribe(and how to get the perk point back). With this one, you'll need
to have your Speech level up to 30 and you'll need to have a bounty in one of
the holds. For me, I had a 10 gold bounty in Whiterun as soon as I got there
for some reason. If you don't have a bounty, just fail a pick pocket on
someone. Save your game, add a perk point to "Bribery" under the Speech skill
tree, and then talk to a guard. You'll have the option to bribe him. My bounty
was 10 gold and my bribe fee was 422 gold, so make sure you have enough gold
on you. If you did things right the trophy should pop. Once it does, just load the game you saved right before talking to the guard and you get your perk
point back.

Hope that helps.
