This is an effective way to start character work with those who are not keen on literature - or Dickens!

The compare/contrast approach gives them a way to start to make valid decisions about a character and to begin to make judgements that they would not initially even consider as being relevant.

I also spend a considerable amount on time, when dealing with characters - looking at the difference between what they say - and what they do. Once they start spotting this for themselves their work will suddenly make improvements by leaps and bounds. They see more clearly just what will be relevant as to "what makes a character"
