... That's not a bad inquiry.

I guess that Mjolnir being made by Thor's father, its influence on him is augmented and... Thor knows himself...

I think Thor knowing himself is the more important factor of the two, however. I haven't seen any evidence of Mjolnir having any greater effect on Thor than on anyone else. If anything, since some of its powers are extensions of or ways of focusing his natural power, I would suspect he might be somewhat immune to their effects (in the way that, say, the Human Torch is immune to his own flame).
I find it hard to believe that Thor can summon and stand unharmed in the midst of storms meant to be daunting to foes that are his physical rivals without being at least somewhat immune to Mjolnir's power. However, I haven't seen any concrete evidence to go that way either, so I figure it's best to assume that he is neither more nor less vulnerable to the hammer's effects.
For what it's worth, my money's still on hammerless Thor here.......mostly because Thor has the strength and durability to withstand most of the hammer's attacks at least for awhile, whereas the humanized Thor wouldn't be able to take even a single glancing blow from his super-strong counterpart.
So with equal skill and presumably equal speed (although hammerless Thor is probably much faster, thanks to his strength to weight ratio) , hammerless Thor needs to land only one blow in the whole fight to win, whereas humanized Thor will need to do more than that unless he can catch the other Thor with a godblast.
Humanized Thor will have two advantages in terms of scoring hits: distance attacks and flight. So he probably will score more hits but not enough, IMO, to put hammerless Thor down before getting the one hit he needs to win the fight. At least not a majority of the time.
