how can I define my own list in which I have all primes less than x?


As Artes said in his comment:

Prime @ Range @ PrimePi @ x. See e.g. this question What is so special about Prime? to get an idea about possible limitations of this approach.

Application of what is being said:

primeInf[x_] := Prime @ Range @ PrimePi @ x
{2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19}
