Following "reciting-the-blessing-of-meshaneh-habriyos-who-makes-creatures-different":

  1. what does a man that falls into that category, e.g. a midget, says upon himself?

  2. Does he have to see himself (like in a mirror) or just look at his body?

  3. How often does he say the blessing (if any)?

    What’s wrong with the question to downvote it? – Al Berko Jul 9 at 22:18

    @AlBerko I think he means the Rema there, that we don’t make these Berachos since we’re used to seeing them. – DonielF Jul 9 at 23:49

    @AlBerko a resultant question might be "does a person with dwarfism, raised in a family of similar sized people make a bracha when seeing a non-dwarf sized person"? (that is, is the bracha based on the percentage of population or the exposure of the individual) – rosends Jul 10 at 0:33

    At what point did the fellow not see himself for 30 days? Al, you have outdone yourself this time IMHO. :) Maybe no brachah but can they recite the verse: "...B'chol dor vador chayav adam liyros es atzmo..." – David Kenner Jul 10 at 3:10

    Ummm.. these brachos cannot be said unless one hasn't seen the object for 30 days. So unless this person had his eyes bandaged for 30 days or was unconscious, it wouldn't apply. – Danny Schoemann Jul 10 at 12:09
