    Hi,

    ********************************************
    بعضی چیزها = some things

    شما بعضی چیزها را نمی دانید = you don't know some things
    بعضی چیزها منو اذیت می کنند = some things bother me
    ********************************************
    چیزهائی = things

    چیزهائی که خداوند می داند = things that only God knows
    چیزهائی در مورد خودم = things (features) about me
    *******************************************
    چیزها = things

    خیلی از این چیزها اینجا پیدا می شوند = many of these things are found here
    *******************************************

    Thanks. I thought چیزھائی meant "some things"! So what then is the difference between چیزھا and چیزھائی ?

    They can somehow be compared to some and some of the:

    بعضی [از] چیزها = some of the things (literally, you first consider a group of definite "things" and then select or differentiate a [indefinite] part of it).
    چیزهایی (without که) = [some] things (here, you consider them indefinite from beginning).

    For example:
    او کارهایی خوب را انجام داد = She did [some] good deeds.
    او بعضی [از] کارهای خوب را انجام داد = She did some of the good deeds.

    ^ Thank you aaqaa-ye-Treaty. It is clear in my mind now. Much appreciated.

    Would بعضی be identical to برخی ?

    برخی is usually used in formal language while بعضی is common in both formal and informal.
