What does 1 Cor 1:26 mean when it says that not many of those who were called were wise, mighty, or noble?

Does this mean that to be born again, one has to have been [literally] foolish, weak and a commoner? If yes, why? If no, why?

1 Corinthians 1:26

ESV - 26 For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth.
