Yes. I like that in a character.

But, more seriously, I see that as being one of the few ways in which Ivan could express his feelings, rebel, receive love of a sort, and act like himself rather than being what others wanted him to be, all at once.  And it doesn't undermine the 'idiot' image he was projecting.
