Self-Working

Self-working is not the best term but it is the one used most often to describe tricks which do not require any sleight-of-hand. The better description is be sleightless. Although these tricks are typically much easier to learn because they do not require any proficiency in moves, they still need practice in presentation, timing and spectator handling.

"Any trick requiring a sleight is not honest. You are telling a lie with your fingers. (...) A puzzle is more clever than a trick, because with a trick you cheat to get the result. With a semi-automatic effect – using a principle – one tends to feel a little more honest." - Stewart James (1908-1996)
