Reading these early Sorilea chapters makes it easy to remember why no one believed she was a Darkfriend until after TGS, despite all the hints. The hints mostly come in later books. At first, she appears to be a very honorable Aiel, and even seems to have a sense of humor when she is not staring daggers at someone. We got more hints with Melindhra, mainly her comments to Mat about being in Rand's shadow, and glory and honor and all that, but Melindhra was not Sorilea, and even though she was a weaker character, she still had a serious internal battle because Far Dareis Mai was so important to her, and because ji'e'toh is a part of the Aiel. It's a competition, which is why I think Sorilea enjoys it. But also, playing the game to a T is what makes the other Wise Ones trust and respect her, and that puts them at her disposal when there is something crucial at stake, the same way she puts Cadsuane at her disposal for later use with the Water Oath and the Traveling weave. (Which doubly foreshadows her ultimate betrayal.)
