A thermistor is a type of resistor whose resistance is dependent on temperature, more so than in standard resistors. The word is a combination of thermal and resistor. Thermistors are widely used as inrush current limiters, temperature sensors (negative temperature coefficient or NTC type typically)

An  NTC thermistor is a thermally sensitive resistor whose resistance decreases significantly with temperature.

A thermistor is a type of resistor whose resistance varies significantly with temperature. They are commonly used for temperature sensing aplications.

This is a 10K Ohms (+/-5%) thermistor with a negative temperature coefficient.

Applications:

Temperature compensation

Temperature measurement

Temperature control
