It is called a "natural sort"

Migration from ArcMap to ArcGIS Pro for data validation—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation provides some coding options. 

In the future if you want to use "text" numbers, you can pre-pend 0's

0001

0011

0111

1111

If you don't want them be in text format, which they currently are, you will have to add a new integer field (short or long) and recalculate the values into it using

int(!YourFieldName!)

then use that field for sorting.
