, what's the difference between N and S

When I try to guess my friends' MBTI types, I usually get the other three letters correct but this one wrong. Whenever I've taken the test, I score right in the middle on this particular continuum, which is probably why I can't quite put my finger on how the two categories are meant to differ.
Can you give me specific examples of how an N and an S might deal with the same situation differently?
For instance, here's a J/P example I liked: "You finish writing an important document a few days before you need to deliver it. Js like to complete the decision-making process fairly quickly, so they would consider the project done and seal the envelope immediately. By contrast, Ps like to take a long time before finalizing decisions, so they would likelier leave the envelope unsealed and even further revise the document before delivering it.
