Are men generally wiser than women when it comes to spending and budgeting money?

I'm a 21 yrs old Engineering student guy and I don't have a job and yet I have $6,000 in my suitcase. I've managed to hoard that much money by collecting money given to me by my parents and relatives for the past few years. I still live with my parents though.

patrick: Not my experience
Money management is not gender specific

Other answer:

patrick:
I don't think they are. Men tend to spend money on the big toys like cars and boats.
Being a saver is an individual thing, I don't think being male or female has a lot to do with it. Neither do I think being a Christian or not being a Christian helps. I really think it's partly genetic.
Michelle:
Gender has nothing to do with money management.
Ambistoma:
Men are generally more reckless, while women are generally more cautious (and in your case, overly so).
DR + Mrs Bears face:
Your sex has nothing to do with how wel you manage money. Hoarding money in a suitcase does not show good money management skills so if men were better you are obviously the exception to the rule.
