    A series one typically increases in resistance to limit the current flowing in a circuit (could be linear change or could reach a point and suddenly get very high - like PTC thermistor).

    A parallel one drops in resistance to divert current from parts of the circuit (could be linear change or could reach a certain point and suddenly get high - like a crowbar).
