Difference between a Permanent and Temporary Magnet?

Answer

The difference between a temporary and permanent magnet is that temporary magnets are created using an electrical field. Once the current is switched off, it is no longer magnetic. A permanent magnet on the other hand, such as the common ferro-ceramic magnet remains magnetic all the time because it was manufactured with all of its iron particles facing the same way.
