Hi! Another way is human alternative racial traits "Eye for Talent"

Humans have great intuition for hidden potential. They gain a +2 racial bonus on Sense Motive checks. In addition, when they acquire an animal companion, bonded mount, cohort, or familiar, that creature gains a +2 bonus to one ability score of the character’s choice. This racial trait replaces the bonus feat trait

There's a difference between active and triggered/conditional abilities. Active abilities normally say "as an X action", whereas triggered/conditional abilities usually contain language like "when making X".

Flurry of Blows is an active ability, as indicated by the "as a full-attack action" in its description. An active ability is an ability (from the "actions in combat" rules, or a racial trait, feat, trait, item, or class feature) that you chose to use independently of other actions. Most active abilities require spending one or more of the limited action that a character has per round (standard, move, and swift).

Now I understand that. Thank you!

To the op
You get number of attacks for full attack. Which is a specific full round action.
2 weapon fighting is a different full round action.
And spell comat is a 3rd full round action that use the rules of the 1st.

If you use your full round action for spell combat you are out of fulk round actions for 2 weapon fighting. Or flurry

There is no such difference in the rules: twf or FoB, and just getting all your attacks for a high BAB is a full attack action. Why can't I use the number of attacks for SC that I have thanks to FoB?

Full Attack
If you get more than one attack per round because your base attack bonus is high enough (see Base Attack Bonus in Chapter 3), because you fight with two weapons or a double weapon, or for some special reason, you must use a full-round action to get your additional attacks

Thanks everyone for the answers. However, i do not see what you are talking about.
SC allows me to cast a spell, and also make a full attack with my weapon. I really don't see why FoB is a separate action: it is clearly signed as a full attack.

Can i use pounce with FoB? If so, does that mean FoBs are a normal full attack action? And if so, why can't you use it as "You can make as many weapon attacks as you would normally be able to make if you were making a full attack with that weapon".

Sorry, I'm not very good at interpreting the rules, but it seems the intent of the FAQ SC was to allow a full attack along with the casting of the spell. But FoB is a complete attack, as Spell Combat wants it to be?

Spell Combat FAQ:
If I use spell combat, how many weapon attacks can I make?
You can make as many weapon attacks as you would normally be able to make if you were making a full attack with that weapon...

Unchained monk:
Flurry of Blows (Ex): At 1st level, a monk can make a flurry of blows as a full-attack action. When making a flurry of blows, the monk can make one additional attack at his highest base attack bonus...

You can make all your attacks with this weapon that you could make with a full attack action. Flurry of Blows makes it possible to make one more attack with a full attack action. You can make one more attack within Spell Combat.
