    Because of his aggressiveness and impulsiveness

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural.

    Because of his aggressiveness and impulsiveness, Phil runs into all kinds of troubles.

    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Because of his aggressiveness and impulsiveness

    It's OK. Once again, I think it can be improved by rephrasing to avoid commas. [EDIT] I missed the superfluous S that ems pointed out.
