I'm not sure how this card made it through playtesting, but Mandy in particular would love this card. Since there is no limit to how many times it can be activated (and you don't even need to use any secrets), she can easily fish out her weakness along with all the research cards in her deck before moving on past the player window to finish the skill test. If it was a particularly difficult/important test (or if she felt like it), she could even fish out all Three Aces at the cost of 3 of the secrets.

I anticipate errata for this card coming very soon.

Note: I say easily, but it'll be very time consuming at only 3 cards at a time. The rest of the players will not be happy as they wait for the performing investigator to go through all the necessary searches until they are satisfied they've found everything that needs to be found in their deck.
