It’s something I’ve been used for a long time but I didn’t know it’s also used in software engineering: Hollywood Principle .

By the way, I use it while talking about interviews:

The Hollywood principle is a software design methodology that takes its name from the cliché response given to amateurs auditioning in Hollywood: “Don’t call us, we’ll call you”. It is a useful paradigm that assists in the development of code with high cohesion and low coupling that is easier to debug, maintain and test.
