First of all, these players aren't "super aggressive." In fact, I don't think I've ever heard of a style called "super aggressive" or even just "aggressive."
There are actually 4 MAIN styles of play: Tight-aggressive (TAG), Loose-aggressive (LAG), Tight-passive, and Loose-passive.
The style that you are describing is LAG. You see a lot of flops and play based on how your opponent reacts, not by what you are actually holding. This style is used by so many pros just for the simple fact that they have better hand-reading abilities than most of their opponents.
For the beginner player (like yourself I'm assuming) it's best to play only the best hands and slowly widen your range as you get better at reading opponents.
