Shadow work would help you.
One of my closest friends is an INTJ and he and I fit together beautifully. It's just really easy to be around him, and he finds my enthusiasm contagious. He's got a layer of sociability, though. It's just a very easy dynamic. He's one of the most un-judgey and flexible J's I've ever met.
Also agree don't bother. Can't win them all. If you resist your inner self so much that you find an entire section of the population repulsive, I can't imagine how hard it is to be you.
Did it ever occur to you ENFP's that maybe you just don't get it?
Digger Blue, ESFP Hard Core.

Wasn't the OP an INTJ???
I struggled with life for years. I finally found out about MBTI, and I became an MBTI junkie. Now I am trying to figure out how to be a success as an ESFP. That is the honest truth about the situation.
I always wanted to be the guy with the right stuff in life. There have been a few times. One time I was helping folks who working in a church. They were discussing a Door Prize and I happened to be walking in with the door off of an ancient Kelvinator refrigerator. I cleared my throat and they realized that I had the door prize. ESFP humor?!
Digger Blue, I probably would have fallen to the floor laughing from that.
And to answer the question, I believe the best way to "tolerate" an ESFP is to tell them why you don't like them. It may make them very mad (We don't like Objective criticism.) But in the long run, they'll probably forgive you and try to "tone it down" when around you.
This has only happened to me a few times, I have a friend who doesn't like it when I get really jumpy. So I just "tone it down" and BAM! Everything is fine.
You'd love me if you met me.
Just from the topic title I had a feeling that this was an INTJ post. My best advice is to use some of that objective analytical ability to see your own shortcomings, and how an ESFP compliments them nicely. Having fun is good for your longevity, and stuff.
How to tolerate ESFPs: I dunno, probably the same way we tolerate others :)
