Can a user benefit from personal powers stored in an empowered object?

I realized while writing this question that I have another issue with empowered objects. Specifically, it is the object using the stored powers, rather than the wearer/wielder/user. Can such an object "target" the user with personal or "self-only" powers? I intend to have a more powerful psionic NPC loan a PC a Psychometabolic item, but most of the powers it’ll have access to are self-targeting and I realized I wasn’t sure if the PC could even use them.
