Going back to the TNG era, when she started to see her house of cards fall, her responses became less and less appropriate. It served to illustrate that while she could coldly calculate and survive, she was flappable and couldn't adapt quickly.

That adaptability: the human characteristic tying Picard, Spock, and Data together (they were all adaptable and, at least partly, human) was part of the subtext of unification.
Okay, you got me on that one. I could see her flying off the handle and making a grievous error by showing her hand like that.
