General definition (in Jainism)Source: JAINpedia: Jainism
Pāriṇāmikī (पारिणामिकी) in Sanskrit (Pāriṇāmiyā in Prakrit) refers to “deductive intelligence” and represents one of the four varieties of indirect knowledge, as explained in the Nandīsūtra.—The first variety of cognition, which combines the functions of the five senses with the mind, is itself subdivided into four kinds [viz., pāriṇāmikī]. These define four types of intelligence or proficiency in general, outside Jain doctrine. No definition of these classes is given in the text. Instead, several verses list mnemonic words referring to examples of story characters who display a given type of intelligence. The elaborate stories featuring these individuals are transmitted in the commentaries on the Nandī-sūtra and even more in the Āvaśyaka-niryukti and its commentaries, where they occupy several pages.
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.

Pāriṇāmikī (पारिणामिकी) in the Sanskrit language is related to the Prakrit word: Pariṇāmiā.
Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
