infamous is gonna confuse the poor guy more hah, notorious means you are well known about something, that something usually is bad, example:

john gotti is a itialian mafia leader, he is notorious for assassinations.

Well, as a matter of fact, I am:

Iím notorious for my absent-mindedness, for being late (in spite of desperate last minute efforts), for my greediness, for my laziness, for keeping too much clutter, for postponing things..., but hopefully not to the point of being infamous or disreputable!
